In section "7.2 Special properties" the current online org manual says:

"The following property names are special and should not be used as keys
in the properties drawer:

...
CATEGORY
...
"


Is it correct to have "CATEGORY" in that list? I thought that putting it
as a key into the property drawer just is how to specify categories.

It is in the list because it is a special property.  So for example
	
     (org-entry-get nil "CATEGORY")

will get you a value for the category even it it is not defined as a  
property of the current entry.  It will use inheritance and also # 
+CATEGORY lines.

But you are right that it *is* allowed in drawers - I have updated the  
manual accordingly.

As I see this, listing the CATEGORY property in Chapter 7.2 is okay.
Chapter 7 is about property drawers in general.  CATEGORY belongs to
the list of reserved property names with a special meaning to Org.
You should not use this property because it modifies Org mode's
behavior and does not work like any other property.
