Comment (by markjaquith):

 There's another issue... what if "Pho" has children?  Do they move up to
 the top with "Pho" ? Do we keep another copy of "Pho" down where it should
 be in the tree?

 It sounds hard to do this way.

 I'm leaning towards a more Flickr-like system.


 Assigned categories:

 [x] PHP
 [x] Technology >> Blogs
 [x] Geology

 Assign additionally categories:

 [ (text input box) ]   [Add >>]

 [Category tree]

 Note how Technology >> Blogs shows the parents of "Blogs," so you
 represent the tree structure instead of a flat tag system like with
 Flickr.  Clicking the [x] next to an assigned category would unassign it

 If JS is available, the text input box would add asynchronously, and the
 category tree would also add asynchronously.  The category tree should
 also remove categories asynchronously when the checkbox is unticked (it
 would remove it from the list above, as well).

 They could work in concert, or, people could hide one portion or the
 other, making it like a pure tag system or a pure category system.

 I should probably do a mockup.
