I'm happy to see "taxonomy" and "vocabulary" bite the dust, but the average
person would happily use "term" and "category" interchangeably to describe
terms, though, so I think there's still potential for confusion there
(especially considering what catch libcom has said about WordPress).
Categorising something means assigning it terms, after all, not somehow
assigning it weird nebulous term-containing objects. Although -1 for
"container", which sounds too much like something I'd put round my lunch
rather than my terms.
I've asked my librarian chums, but does anyone here know what archivists and
the like call all these things? That might point us in an unambiguous direction.
