Taxonomy: Introduce more fine grained capabilities for managing taxonomy terms.

This introduces the singular edit_term, delete_term, and assign_term meta capabilities for terms, and switches the base capability name for tags from manage_categories to manage_post_tags and the corresponding edit_post_tags, delete_post_tags, and assign_post_tags.

All of these capabilities ultimately map to manage_categories so by default there is no change in the behaviour of the capabilities for categories, tags, or custom taxonomies. The map_meta_cap filter and the capabilities argument when registering a taxonomy now allow for control over editing, deleting, and assigning individual terms, as well as a separation of capabilities for tags from those of categories.

Fixes #35614
