Not sure what exactly you mean, but no, I don't think so. Event
categories are defined in the .mc file and they are compiled into a
binary resource, which is then utilized by the Event Viewer. This
resource cannot be modified, other than by recompiling it.

If events that are emitted by the sink contain some non-existent
category, I guess, the Event Viewer will show them as errors. The event
description will still be visible, though.

No, not yet. That can be easily added, if I'm not missing anything.
