 Replying to [comment:5 markjaquith]:
 > dd32 — what do rewrite rules matter? This is for default permalinks — no
 rewrite rules are in play.

 I was attempting to make the point of why the change has happened, That
 it's using the query_var specified in the register_taxonomy call, of
 whcih, is also utilised by the
 includes/taxonomy.php#L331 rewrite rule generation code], when you also
 look at the get_term_link code, it either uses the
 includes/taxonomy.php#L2844 permastruct in use, or the query_var], Ie. The
 generated rewrite rules, as well as the non-rewrite rules rely on the same
 query var param
