[Bioc-devel] biocViews - Spatial

I have a question about biocViews. Currently we are including packages for
spatially resolved transcriptomics analysis in the SingleCell (and
SingleCellData / SingleCellWorkflow) biocViews.

Would it be possible to add a new biocViews for spatial data? We are likely
to see a lot of new packages in this area in the coming years, so it could
be useful to split them out from SingleCell.

And if so, should we call it Spatial or SpatialTranscriptomics? (e.g. maybe
having a more general Spatial would be better since this could also include
spatial proteomics)

So then I would imagine the following new biocViews, mirroring the current
ones for SingleCell:
- Spatial
- SpatialData
- SpatialWorkflow

Do others have any views on this?
