Comment (by nickgeorgakis):

 This might not be the right place to add this ''(Feel free to delete this
 post if inappropriate)'' but I have developed a custom plugin to do just
 that - specify a custom primary category that is used to generate the
 wordpress-plugin / NG Primary Category Plugin]
 Currently I have to modify the categories checkboxes through PHP output
 buffering using  preg_replace - maybe a new WordPress hook would make it
 By adding the primary category ID in post meta data no Database changes
 are required.
 I had to copy parts of Wordpress
 \wp-includes\link-template.php: function get_permalink() in my plugin
 Couldn't be possible to implement something similar in a future WP
 Any suggestions are welcomed!
