Totally agree, users except terms to be categories.

The real "new concept" in drupal compared to others systems is the  
Vocabulary. And after all, a vocabulary is a kind of 'classification  
root', so why not:

taxonomy.module -> classification.module
vocabulary -> classification
term -> category

My 2 cents :)
