If it's not shown in the UI for your client as an option to add, then  
it's likely not supported by the client.

This is incorrect. Each category should be wrapped in a  
<POOMCONTACTS:Category> tag as well. This was fixed in Turba around a  
month ago, though it might not have been released to PEAR yet.
