I think it's just a question of interpretation. 
PmWiki has never defined links of the form [[!ABC | text]] -- it's
always been just [[!ABC]].  To get a link to a category with
alternate text one is supposed to use  [[Category.ABC | text]].

That said, there's a good point to be made that perhaps
[[!ABC | text]] should work.  Opinions?
