Description

Spun off of #26268 per chat with @helen https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/core/p1424923581006944 #26268 will focus on UI indicating Default Category.

Currently, to change the Default Category, you must visit Settings->Writing. Since this only impacts one taxonomy, it may make more sense to remove the option from there and add it within the Category taxonomy.

Attaching modified patch of #26268 that contains only the UI to set the default.

As a counterpoint, so that it's documented here - there are also options for default post format and default link category (if links are on). While those exist on that screen, does it make sense to split them?

Per https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/32396#comment:5, the default post post format setting will probably start being hidden from new installs. Therefore, this should be reconsidered. Was talking with @kraftbj about this yesterday about doing this for 4.3
