I proposed the same thing earlier on Wiki issues (4 other "list pages")

I also tried to solve this issue by adding a list of most important 
articles of the category on top of the category page. This method is not 
100% successful yet.

(This table does not give a good overview, and does not really help 
navigation in the whole site. But that may also be caused by having the 
too many "subcategory" assignments. Anyway, now it looks better than I 

In brief: I agree with removing manually maintained out-of-sync article 
list pages, but we should try harder with category intros then. :-)
