I have a client/site with a few Huge (yes, capital 'H'; and still growing) 
taxonomy tree. I need to fix the UI for this too. 

Maybe Chris Messina, I and others, can work out the agreements from the 
Useability sprint, and actually code something for this? I will first focus 
on getting the notes and agreements of tis sprint together & online, but in 
the mean time this taxo-interface issue can be launched. 

Because IMO the whole taxonomy admin is a UI problem. 
Chris, can you get back to me about this? Anyone else with some 
interface-ideas and some time, please volunteer?
