I remember some of the mods saying that the users were "overcategorizing" the wiki. But I don't mind new categories for the various methods of manual operation that firearms can use. It depends on how much you believe the definition from wikipedia should be used for "repeater." And since multi-shot firearms were so new at the time lever-actions were first introduced, I think that's why the term "repeater" became synonymous with lever-action long guns back then.

I'll just leave my rationale for why the Carbine category should be removed at this link here.
