Don't think that works .... something about template-including (the {{ }}'s)
and the Special page doesn't work..... I was going to say the same thing

Maybe you could create an "All Categories" category, and add all your
categories to it by default ....and then create an article "Category List"
or something, and use the NiceCategoryList extension to generate the index
of all the categories dynamically -- and then include that {{Category List}}
on your main page.....

if that makes any sense! :-)
