I've done this. Importation of selected categories from feeds.

I took it a little further and added a sections property to the planet 
by creating a new subclass "ezine". There is category to section mapping 
in the configuration file.

You can see my planet here: http://www.worldsankirtan.net and the output 
of my ezine code here: http://www.worldsankirtan.net/ezine/archives/2.html.

I have been keeping track of what I am doing here: 

I was going to make it super compatible with Planet Planet, but I'm not 
sure how far I've gone off track here.

The code is a bit rough and I'm still working it, but you are welcome to it.
