AFAIK it *does* require access to the original archive. When you tag a
category into a new archive, you're creating the equivalent of a
symbolic link, *not* moving the data. If you delete the old archive, you
lose all your work.

It would be nice to have a clean way to really move a category to a new
archive though.

Be well,
