GSM maybe should be "international", and leave carriers as is.
I realize there will be some amount of stuff that could go in either - but Rob didn't want to go the redirecting route.

and each will have prefix sets to differentiate.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus:
And in the ATR:
With this scenario you would be constantly adding prefixes to the list (especially if this format is used for the GS3). Plus, guides would need specific knowledge about the devices in order to properly prefix them (GSM docks are not compatible with LTE docks for the GNex but I wouldn't know that if I wasn't an owner).
I think sticking with General, Tips, Accessories, and Support would work. All guides would be able to properly prefix threads and the guides that are familiar with the device can keep up with manually adding the prefix to the actual thread title.
