This might need to be the case for revisions, too, but someone brought up a good point that some changes are reasonably "cosmetic only" (e.g. Kirby going from being a jolly fellow to a clearly upset pink blob), while others are more gameplay-oriented, like making enemies more difficult or changing how some level layout was.

It might be too much work for too little gain to split these up, but I'm curious what everyone thinks.

It might be something to add as a new category to easily locate that kind of content on the site, but if these changes still occur at the regional/revisional level then I don't see a need to remove them from those sections on a page.

The gameplay-oriented changes are certainly more interesting, but they're all still regional differences anyway. It could be good if a page has a ton of content in its regional changes section to split it into multiple categories, but overall I don't think it's necessary.

If you're going to make that split I think you might as well count revisional differences under the same categories. That would mean it's not obvious which of those two is going on without reading the article.

I'm not sure what you'd gain from doing it, but I'm indifferent about it I guess.
