This would both tend to create something vaguely like those "schools" that some of us like (without actually bringing in all the extra rules that "schools" or "colleges" of magic require) and provide a bonus to people who want to specialize in that particular type of Spell.

The only real joker in the deck is the "special" category, which might be somewhat problematic, but if it is, then you could just ignore it and stick to the other "kinds" of spells...
