Thanks for reporting this.  I pushed a fix in the maint branch which
allows for such category names to be enclosed within double quotes
when the user wants to complete them -- the quotes helps not being
confused by the hyphen when reading the complete filter string, which
might contain other syntacticly meaningful hyphens.

I haven't fixed the case for filetags but shouldn't filetags follow
the same convention than mere tags of not allowing "-" ?

Let me know if I (or the documentation) miss something and if the
fix is good enough for you.
