If I was to describe a typical developer, I might say they have a database schema with the number of database tables being in the hundreds.  When a developer is given some work to do, a typical task would involve only working with a subset of these database tables at a time.
When looking in the .4db Meta-Schema Manager, or the Database Structure View, the developer does not want to see the hundreds of database tables in the entire product, they would find it beneficial to only see the database tables related to the area they are working in.
What you have in Genero Studio is the concept of the Category property within the Meta-Schema Manager.  For each and every table, you can enter a category value to group tables.  You can then use the filter functionality to only view tables that have that particular category value.
