Cannot protect "category" by password?

I have found ways to set "event"s to PRIVATE and then allow access by two ways, for either of the attributes READ and WRITE access: by (indico) user or by (anonymous) password. Thus I have essentially 4 ways to protect an event against unwanted access:
- read by (indico) user,
- read by (anon) password,
- write by user,
- write by password.
However, I could only configure a "category" for 1., 3. and 4. The READ protection by password only is not possible, in contrary to events.
Is that a wanted feature or a matter of system configuration? Can it be added to the earliest next release?
PS: I perfectly suport the point of view that WRITE access with password-only (po) is a relict of CDSagenda which should be phased out at some time. But in my mind READ access by po would always have some interest and in any case be more important than po WRITE.
