Comment (by TimothyBlynJacobs):

 > The term_exists call is made only for custom taxonomies for which has
 been defined a default_term (and the default value in null).
 > However term_exists() doesn't cache results anyway and adding it could
 be an interesting new functionality.

 Right, which is why I think we should first check if the default taxonomy
 option is already set so we can avoid that uncached query.

 > So I refreshed the patch by updating also default_term parameter
 documentation (I leaved string|array type).

 The patch has been committed already, so it needs to be refreshed against

 A separate thing. With the current version, is it possible to completely
 remove all terms from a post? Looking at the code it seems like the
 default term will always get added back.
