 Mark Jaquith has said he would like to see WordPress
 wordpress "Simplify taxonomy table structure by merging term and term
 taxonomy tables"].''

 Basically the idea ''(I think)'' is to merge the `wp_terms` table into the
 `wp_term_taxonomy` table.  Will we keep the name `wp_term_taxonomy` or
 will it get changed to another table name, with a different schema, of
 course? And what should the updated schema be?  Further, would doing this
 drive addition of [http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/10142 taxonomy

 If this is going to be something addressed in WordPress it would be nice
 to kickstart the process sooner than later. This is coming up because it's
 a concern mentioned during our
