Many of the properties where "singularized", in vCard it is actually
honorific-prefixed (plural) but since most people only have one we moved
to an all singular format. If you want (or have) to prefixes you simple
create two instances of the singular.

So for multiple categories (instead of saying)
<ul class="categories">
you use
<li class="category">..</li>
<li class="category">..</li>

That way if you only have one category you are not forced to use the
plural for a single instance.

So multiple single instances are how you achieve plural forms.
