I think the answer is no. Look in traits slotsOutliner, there is a
method called "categories" in the "category iterating" category.  You
can see ther that the outliner just uses an iteration over all slots.
As near as I can tell this method is at the center of haw the outliner
determines categories. 

Good luck,
