I see the following categories in my /usr/share/info/dir file:
GNU Gettext Utilities
Texinfo documentation system
Text creation and manipulation
I don't see an option for install-info to add a category (without a
file), so we probably have to add them manually.
I just did manual tests: If a line 'Editor' exists, install-info run
on vi.info adds it below that. So one possible solution would be to
add the lines mentioned above (in any order, I sorted them).
