There are several other issues with current concept:
- You can only insert before a category
- Breadcrumb is wrong when cms page is displayed
- Highlighting does not work when cms page is displayed
- no icon for cms page possible
- if cms page is moved to another place navigation is still at the old and now wrong place when cms page is displayed
- cms 'categories' are not visible in products/categories

If you do it another way, create a new blank category, and insert "[{oxcontent ident=cmsident}]" in category longtext (cms as snippet), the page looks almost the same as with "cms as category/insert before", but all of the things mentioned above do work. So the idea is to change the logic from "insert before" to "attach to category", or, from category view, to have an option in category where you could select a cms page to be displayed in this category.

This would also give the possibility to reduce special handling now needed for "content cats" in templates to a minimum.
