Add module to get the list of all TrackingCategories
Open, LowPublic

Description

A special page already give the informations about tracking categories, [[Special:TrackingCategories]].
The purpose of this bug/enhancement is to provide a way to get this list through the API.

In module action=query&meta=siteinfo, add a value for siprop parameter named trackingcategories.
The result will give for each tracking category both system message names for the category name and the category description.

I wonder whether a list module wouldn't be better for this, both because meta=siteinfo is already rather overgrown and because the list module could be made to be used as a generator.
