Whiteboard

The category namespace can be protected so that only administrators
can create and edit pages:

$wgNamespaceProtection[NS_CATEGORY] = array( 'editinterface' );

This extension will

1. view a dialog window with a categor tree (with foldable
   subcategories) that has a checkbox next to each category,

2. insert a hidden input in the edit view that contains all checked
   categories,

3. operate via a save hook that removes all categories from an article
   and instead inserts the categories from the category editor.
