I think that category is more descriptive, and the name "category"
is what has been historically used by other wikis. But perhaps we
could describe "[[!XYZ]]" as being a "label markup", and Category.XYZ
then becomes a list of all pages containing the "[[!XYZ]]" label.
This might reduce confusion that results from calling "[[!XYZ]]"
the "category" markup.
