I feel that is not true. Category is but one expression of taxonomy. 
Taxonomy is far more complex and powerful than a simple 
category/tagging system and calling it such is good. Talk to any 
information professional, such as librarians, and they will tell you 
that taxonomy is an important term/concept and drupal gets much 
credit for using that term instead of dumbing it down as "categories"

I've had more than one opportunity to develop on drupal because the 
system is called "taxonomy" and therefor implies much more complex 
possibilities than if it was called tags or categories.
