Also there might be queries one might want to run on the categories,
which would be another reason to include them in Commons Wikibase.

I know the categories in Commons exist. I also know that you do not have to

They are there and they evolve. When the "community" finds that they are no
longer useful, there will be others who still want to work on it. They can,
it is a harmless occupation. Why would we consider removing category
structures as long as someone cares about them ??
