[wp-hackers] Question Regarding Taxonomy Terms per User

A quick question:
One of my weekend projects is creating a Instapaper/Reader type app using
WordPress.  It all works great for storing bookmarks but I am running into
a bit of an issue if I want to scale this beyond a single user.  I
currently have a Post Type of 'bookmark' and a custom tax for users to
categorize these bookmarks as they see fit.  The issue is mainly that terms
are defined on a global level and there is no way to have a term have an
'author' or to only be specified by user.  I could use a term meta plugin
but that becomes an issue when trying to use the loop (WP_Query).  Does
anyone have a good data architecture for something like this?

In short....each user would have there own taxonomy terms for their
specific bookmarks and only those would show up on a page.  I would need to
get these terms without having to go through each term.
