 I would like to see WP save all term creation - and last modified -
 datetimes by default as term meta.

 Easy use case example to see advantage: Ordering Category terms by
 creation date straight-off instead of making a query for posts and
 deciding the order that way. Term ID's do not always convey the correct
 order - especially if data migration/s have been made.

 Would also enable a surefire way to publish term creation dates in a term
 listing instead of having to pull info from posts within said terms.

 Would not interfere with existing architecture too much - "too much"
 because the meta key could be something like "term_date" or
 "term_created_date" and "term_modified_date" - someone might have used the
 same keys when creating custom meta.

 The addition would not increase DB size or complexity by much.
