Comment (by bpetty):

 This might be a little more confusing than I thought. For some reason
 `wp_ajax_add_link_category()` is checking for `manage_categories` as well,
 but I'm fairly certain that should also be `manage_links` just like the
 `wp_ajax_delete_link()` method uses, and also as determined from the
 default [https://github.com/tierra/wordpress/blob/master/wp-
 includes/taxonomy.php#L94-L98 link_category taxonomy].

 I haven't thought through the possible back compat issues that might arise
 from actually fixing it though, so I'm just not sure on applying this yet.

 Maybe punt for now?
