[wp-hackers] wp_insert_term - why no name?

The wp_insert_term() function differs slightly, due to the fact it's
primary use is to create, rather than update.

The signature in expanded form is:
wp_insert_term( Name, Taxonomy, array( Slug, Parent, Alias Of, Description) )

whereas, wp_update_term is
wp_update_term( Term ID, Taxonomy, array( Name, Slug, Parent, Alias
Of, Description) )
as you're operating on the Term ID rather than the Term Name..

I'm not sure what documentation you're looking at, as I always suggest
looking at the source when something doesnt make sense.
