I think you may be going about this incorrectly, you are creating, from your example, a profile with no data or relationships. This is not the way to do this, you should create a profile when you have information, at least a birth date and a relationship to another profile, at the same time ensuring that you are not creating a duplicate.
If you add more details to the Biography as well then you would not have the problem of the credit ref being next to the category. The four extra steps you mention do not complete the profile, a complete profile has all the dates, relationships and a Biography narrative.
You imply that there are some existing profiles that are incorrect, and that you are creating a new one to get the category entered, this is not the way to do it, you need to contact the profile managers and work with them to improve the profile already on wikitree, there should only be one profile per person. The one you list above has dozens of potential duplicates as you have no dates or other data entered.
