Comment (by boonebgorges):

 A bypass filter for `get_term()` is a very powerful tool. I'm concerned
 that (a) it's liable to be misused, and (b) if we create such a term here,
 we'll be asked for similar filters elsewhere in the taxonomy component
 (`wp_update_term()`, `get_terms()`, etc) as well as for objects like

 Looking at how you're using the filter, it seems like a filter on the
 return value of `wp_get_nav_menu_object()` would actually work better for
 your purposes. Does that seem right?
