There are many good reasons for all of this data to be together in the
master database such as shared nodes and crossings of categories. However
various extract, import, and rendering tools are able to do what you
suggest, which are better places for this to happen.

Have you tried out the PostGIS import tool ImpOSM? [1] It processes the data
into more logical categorizations similar to your list (and these categories
are easily customizable).
