Morbus took some time to explain this to me. He wants users to be able
to tag any content that they might want to tag, or at least he wants
admins to be able to enable that functionality. That is, also nodes they
haven't authored. That's why he needs (tid, nid, uid) in term_node.

"all the terms I've tagged a node with". The terms I've created would
be term_data.uid.
