#19332 closed enhancement (maybelater)

'Edit Category' page lacks hooks to edit form fields

The default 'Name', 'Slug' and 'Description' form fields are stuck in place on Categories and Custom Taxonomies.
There are hooks before and after the form (eg {$taxonomy}_pre_edit_form), but nothing to modify the basic output.
These fields, especially 'slug', can scare civilians and it would be nice not to have to use JS to hide them.
