What about that last param in db_rewrite_sql() for extra args? I've been 
working on a massive Tagadelic patch (ugh...) and have passed in 
array('omit_check' => 'tagadelic') for certain db_rewrite_sql calls that 
I don't want passing through taxonomy visibility settings. It's probably 
not the most desirable solution, but has worked for the time being. I 
don't think this is what that last param in db_rewrite_sql() is designed 
for this, but I could be wrong.
