Converting a page to a redirect through VisualEditor should (ask if it's OK to?) remove the existing categories/options if there is no other content
Closed, DuplicatePublic8 Estimate Story Points

Description

Open an existing page in VE
Blank the content.
Open "Page settings", check "Redirect this page to", set another article and save.
The resulting redirect still holds the categories and other non visible settings the original page had, like TOC DISAMBIG INDEX {{DEFAULTSORT:}}
While the rest of the settings do not harm, categories keep displaying the empty redirect in category pages (probably the same categories with the target page).
