Are you saying that there are no benefits of having a table called
something like "wp_taxonomy" where all the "taxonomy" information such
as taxonomy_id , taxonomy_name, hierarchial or not, rewrite stuff and even
the "taxonomy_description" and so on? I don't get it.
And what do you mean by " we don't have any UI for registering taxonomies
from wp-admin. "
