Description

As WordPress 4.4 takes Taxonomy Term Meta, it's a huge leap. Kudos to the team's effort.

But as in Add New Post/Add New Page contains an additional meta box named "Custom Fields" for adding data into the postmeta table, taxonomy term, not even in default taxonomy term contains any of such meta box. So the termmeta table becomes writable only by the Programmers and the programmers only. But using Custom Fields meta box a general user can use the postmeta table.

Screenshot 1: Enabling Custom Field Meta Box in Add New Post page
Screenshot 2: Add New Post's Custom Field Meta Box
Screenshot 3: Term doesn't contain any of such Meta Box

So the only option remains to a developer is to add necessary fields using hooks - the old method.

Can we add "Custom Fields" meta box for taxonomy terms too?

Meta boxes in general are needed for both terms and user admin pages
