[wp-hackers] Inconsistency between the category edit form and the category add form

FWIW, I reported the same issue with tags:

Use Case:
I have created a plugin that does two things: (1) allows slug for a term to
be managed, and (2) allows a landing page to specified that overrides the
wordpress-taxonomy page.  The use case for the second feature is not as
common as the first, essentially by sending the wordpress to an actual page,
there are more options for integrating other content with the listing of
posts in a given term.

The hooks to make it work are below.  Note: that that if you are simply
adding args to wp_insert_term and wp_update_term you just have to carefully
name your fields because $_POST is passed along.

//create the form elements
add_action('add_tag_form_fields', 'bu_taxonomy_term_fields', 1, 1);
add_action('edit_tag_form_fields', 'bu_taxonomy_term_fields', 1, 1);

//save the data
add_action('created_' . $tax->name, 'bu_term_saved', 1, 2);
add_action('edited_' . $tax->name, 'bu_term_saved', 1, 2);
