The main developers say custom taxonomies is coming in 2.8.  In the meantime

That doesn't exactly answer your question about binding a taxonomy to a
type, but the structure of the DB doesn't really allow for anything else
right now.  It's a change I could see them making in the future, but not for
a while (IMHO, as I'm not "tight" with the core dev team).
