fyi, usually boundaries don't have category number.
e.g. two parcels of land next to each other, which "owns" the boundary?
It's ok if the boundary is something like a road.

add a centroid in the input or add later with v.centroids.

the "standard" format is explicit. Sorry if that is unclear in the options.
