Hi,

I don't think you need to add something in the model.

Use the aspect "cm:generalclassifiable" to hold that information.

In order to allow your user to choose a category, you will have to update the form for the discussion type in order to show the "cm:categories" field.

Look at the documentation : Configuring forms | Alfresco Documentation 

You could also look to tutorial from Jeff Potss (ecmarchitect.com)
