Classify deponents

In a discussion with Michael Bushell (the excellent Bibleworks programmer)
the question came up, how to classify deponents (in Pres, Imperf, and Perf)
in the morphological tagging of a Bible program.
If you have to decide, how would you do this?
Classify according to form only? All Middle?
Or according to meaning? Many Active?
And would you try to find and assign any "hidden fine differences" in usage
to distinguish middle and passive?

Best wishes
