node_load($uid)  vs user_load(array('uid' => $uid)) 
  :: parameters of various load/save/update are very incosistent. Some eat 
objects, other only certain arrays, again others dont eat anything, but grab 
it from the form api. 

taxonomy_get_term() vs foo_load 
 :: naming of apis. 

And a lot more small, details.

It can. It will. Given time. Categories module is one of the ways to get this.

But its not a real problem. It just needs work and code, not even a lot of 
talk and reviews, I think. Though Drupal itself does not need this, It works 
fine as it it, IMO, which is why no-one has not sat down for this, I think. 
Its just the odd project like these fixtures that require consistent apis. 
(Well, my brain would not mind either :) )
