We don't define the semantics of "category" clearly.  We can
think of the category name "Japanese" as "characters
belonging to one of Japanese character set".  Then that
character surely have that cateogry.  And, in Emacs 22, that
kind of definition was surely useful.

Although, I agree that such kind of definition is not
appropriate now, I have no good idea about how to improve it
without breaking backward compatibility.
