    Currently it moves them to the default category.

    ...or category of your choosing?

    That sounds very sensible and shouldn't be too difficult to implement.

    I like this idea but agree with SeorEpiphyte. There should be functionality allowing the user to move children to a parent of their choosing.

    This one feature would improve the manageability of WordPress blogs tenfold.

    Sounds easy to implement, huge management benefits, untold time saved.

    I don't know if this is a good idea. Perhaps an option that would allow you designate where the child objects go, like a pull down menu option. I can think of a lot of instances where I would not what the child objects to be thrown into the parent category by default. I currently use a plugin to batch change my category assignments before making this kind of a change, because I may want to parse these posts into various subcategories.

    The root of the issue is that if you are deleting a child, there is no simple answer as to where the posts that belong to that child object should go. They were put in that sub-category for a reason, and assigning a category, other than Uncategorized, is a little presumptuous.
