Description

When registering a custom taxonomy to add option to add a description like when registering a custom post type.

http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_taxonomy

No "description" argument.

I think this is important because it is a summary of what the taxonomy is about.

Where might the description be used?

Note that the 'description' field for post types isn't actually used anywhere.

Replying to johnbillion:

Note that the 'description' field for post types isn't actually used anywhere.

It can be used on taxonomy page "site.com/my_taxonomy", and/or on terms page "site.com/my_taxonomy/my_term" - in a heading like <h3>Taxonomy description</h3>.

It's a very easy fix btw(but should not be in a conflict with the term description).
