In the Rules as Written, Martial Weapon Proficiency is essentially 'Exotic Weapon Proficiency for Dummies' - you have to take it for each weapon you wish to be proficient with.
This is weak - using a scimitar is not so dissimilar to a longsword that it requires a new feat, surely? Certainly, proficiency with a shortbow should equate to proficiency with the longbow and their composite versions?

So - my proposed house rule for discussion:

Martial Weapon Proficiency covers broad groups of weapons, rather than individual weapons as per the RAW. These group are Bows, Melee slashing, Melee piercing, and Melee bludgeoning. Thrown martial weapons are covered under their melee group. Where weapons fall into more than one category (e.g. the scythe), either proficiency covers both uses of the weapon.
