Defining Categories in an AMP

I'm developing several custom content types and as such have a lot of custom categories that I have created.

For the time being, I've created them via the Admin UI, however this method isn't reproducable and doesn't allow me to easily deploy my content to dev, test and prod environments. Instead I'd like the categories to be part of the AMP file I'm developing, but I don't understand what method I need to use to do this.

As mentioned in this thread http://forums.alfresco.com/en/viewtopic.php?t=7052, I could generate a categories.xml and use that to bootstrap a clean server installation, but that isn't possible in a production environment.  The "category import script" attached to the post is an alternative, but I wanted to know if there is a "standard" way of doing it via an AMP file that I'm not seeing?

Thanks
