Currently categories cannot be renamed. The only possible action is to delete it, create another one (loosing history), and move all pages to the new category.
There should be a rename action for categories (like renaming pages) which should also updates all pages in the category, without loosing the category history.
We can not do this until we get the category informations out of the wikitext :-(
Can we have "moving category page only" (without its members) so editing history can be preserved.
"moving category page only" feature would be great to have.
For page update, we may have to use a bot.
