Verne - sounds like a good workaround in principal, but how do you plan to hide the category so nobody will stumble across it accidentally?

With this workaround applied, customers will not be able to find a category. However, products from it will appear in search results, if you use a search widget.

Problem: I also have used the CSS to hide "breadcrumbs" (so the customer does not find the Backorder category) and also to hide the Subcategory Icons in the Product Browser (so the customer is led to navigate using only the Category Tab widget with cascading Subcategories). Because of this setup, I can not simply link the "Backorder" button directly to the main Subcategory under Backorder (Backorder > Apperal) since if I do - the Product Browser will only show the word "Apperal" which is not clickable.
It is better to hide your category using the way I posted above.
