As far as I know, p2 does not support *publishing* subcategories.Yes, it does: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=406902 , but it requires a category.xml.
Whatever uses tycho publisher from category.xml can take advantage of it, but PDE UI doesn't support editing nested p2 categories.
Those that do create subcategories do so with custom code, which we would not like to have in the "Sim Rel" since we want the categories to be defined in a central place, independent of how projects might define categories on their own sites with their own custom code.
I'm not aware of any popular p2 repo that uses nested categories. However, you can import the "examples" attached to the bugzilla above and give them a try.
