    33These functions aren't technically category-only as they accept a set $taxonomy. And because they are actually taxonomy-agnostic, I think we have a few different routes we can take to clean up after ourselves a bit: 
     
    55A) Lock down these functions to 'categories'-only in favor of new, taxonomy-agnostic ones. 
    66 
    7 B) Leave the functions alone but let the inline-docs and hard-coded strings such as 'No Categories' reflect their versatility. e.g. 'No Terms' vs 'No Categoriies'.

    99C) Deprecate these older functions in deference to newer, taxonomy-agnostic ones.
