As long as the "Applications" pages are maintained by hand, it does not
matter that the "Applications" subcategories include pages also tagged

If someday the "Applications" pages are maintained automatically, then
this will probably be done using the "Semantic MediaWiki" extension, which
allows to build lists of pages filtering out those tagged "Ideas".
