 In #49380 the `is_post_publicly_viewable()` function was introduced which
 encapsulates the logic used to determine if a post type is visible to
 anonymous users.

 We should do the same for terms via an `is_term_publicly_viewable()`
 function. Although the logic for terms is more straight forward this
 serves the same purpose as introducing the corresponding function for
 posts -- to centralise and reduce the logic needed to validate a term and
 determine if it's publicly viewable.

 There are several places in core that would benefit from an additional
 "viewable" check before outputting a link to a term, but those changes can
 happen in a follow-up ticket.
