At the moment adding categories (through "page settings") involves turning away from the actual content. This is a problem because a lot of categories are dependent on the actual content, which needs to be referred back to - birth or death years, college, etc, etc.
- Show the existing categories in the standard skin location (at the bottom of the page, in Vector)
- Make the categories editable there, in some way.

I can see categories when I read an article. I can see them below the editing paraphernalia when I'm in Edit Source. But in VE I can only see them by clicking "Page Settings", which (a) takes a click and (b) means I can't see any of the article content (eg the hard-to-remember-the-spelling district name, the birth date, etc which I might want to use in creating categories, having seen that they aren't already there). Please display the categories in or around the article, not just as "Page settings".

I want to be able to see the categories when I've got an article open in VE: just as I can see them when reading the article, or when editing it in Edit Source. I don't want to have to click on "Page Data" to find out whether or not it's already got categories.
