We'll still have the category base and tag base, right? In which case, won't they just work as they
do now? anything site.tld/category/my_term/ would be queried as a post_category, anything
site.tld/tag/my_term/ would be queried as a post_tag. At least, that's how I understood Ryan's

It would be cool if it was loosely coupled enough that we could map a term to whatever object in
whatever taxonomy we wanted. You'd probably say that the core functions would always add
link_category terms to links and post_category terms to posts, but we don't have to enforce this on
plugins. That way, a plugin could add my_future_taxonomy which was applicable to posts, pages,
links and attachments (or any combination of those). If a plugin has a good reason to add a
post_category term to a link, or a link_category to an attachment (though I'm not saying I can think
of one), then it should be allowed to.
