On why I like to move indexes of pages to category pages

TV Tropes has the nightmarish problem of not being able to keep track of all subpages of it's indexes without slavishly copying the work MediaWiki's category pages do automatically, so for pages that are master pages of an index of trope subpages, I prefer moving their contents to a category page and redirecting the trope page to point to it's category page.

Short version, it's less work to keep track of everything.

I'm not really sure how a rename and adding a category to the redirect page is easier than editing a page to add {{subpages}} to a page. Achieves the same effect without putting content in the Category namespace.

Agreed. I posted a longer re[ply on the DW forums on this topic where I explain why I believe you are in the right here in more detail.
