The main issue here is that categories are turning into tags - which  
are essentially the same. The difference will be that calendars will  
be able to be tagged with multiple tags, and so can the events the  
calendar contains. The problem with keeping a per-tag-color  
implementation is how to handle the coloring when an event is tagged  
multiple times....and how to handle when a calendar and the event are  
both tagged, which color should take precedence etc...  To sum it up,  
events can have multiple tags, but only ever one calendar - so it  
makes sense IMO, to color per calendar.

If you have any ideas as to how to represent multiple tags with colors  
without the calendar looking like my 5 year old's crayon box, feel  
free to share :)

I *do* think the point you bring up with having your categories  
pre-configured is a good one - I'm sure there are many people using it  
in this way, not sure yet how to go about satisfying that use-case  
with tags...
