categories are the "tags" in the wiki, I don't see why to add a new one
which most likely complicates instead simplifies.
However, I understand that some kind of tagging is necessary, hence see below.

I agree with Michael here, that ther should be a guide how to use categories.
And then, based on that guide, a wel defined list.

Some categories to add, please discuss:

It would be nice if some categories are placed in the templates, as it 
is for "OWASP Chapter" currently. This would usage simpler, less errorprone.

And a first not for the guide:
  place [Category:...] at bottom of page (this is more natural 'cause
  they are rendered this way)

Just my 2 pence
