#22938 new enhancement

Presentation of hierarchical taxonomy in Media modal should be checkboxes rather than comma-separated tag list

Since 3.5, using register_taxonomy_for_object_type on attachments, if the taxonomy used is hierarchical, whereas in the edit attachment UI you see the normal list of checkboxes, in the corresponding modal it is presented as a comma-separated list of slugs, as if it were a non-hierarchical taxonomy (tags rather than categories). I'm sure this is not a bug / mistake / oversight, but at best it's a little unintuitive (you need to have memorised the category slugs to add new ones) and worst a bit dangerous (risk of adding unwanted categories), and it would be great if in future it was presented here too as a list of checkboxes.
