Quick Edit: use taxonomy cap for assigning terms

Reported by: lancewillett Owned by:
Milestone: 3.3 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Quick/Bulk Edit Keywords: has-patch

When assigning tags via the Quick Edit form in the posts list, currently no check is made for whether or not the current user has permission to assign terms.

The normal post edit form disables the terms textarea if the cap check fails: see http://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/wp-admin/includes/template.php#L103.

Related (but not in patch): there doesn't seem to be a way to disable assigning categories -- or any hierarchical taxonomy -- from the Quick Edit form.
