Comment (by spacedmonkey):

 I have actioned feedback from @peterwilsoncc. If now uses
 `$_wp_suspend_cache_invalidation` global. This makes the code a lot
 cleaner and means I could add a unit test.

 If now means if you want an uncached term_exists call you can do this.

    wp_suspend_cache_invalidation( true );
    $term = term_exists( 'thing' );
    wp_suspend_cache_invalidation( false );

 Which might be useful for devs.
