The main (primary) taxonomy term in post

It's retundation ticket, but I decided to write it, because of WP 5.5 update.

WP 5.5 added the default taxonomy term. It's awesome, and I believe that we should move step further and this functionality should be extended also by selecting the main (primary) taxonomy term.

When post has several taxonomy terms (e.g. 10), we very often want to choose the main (primary) term (e.g. for breadcrumbs).

Currently, this problem is solving by the plugins (e.g. Yoast SEO, Rank Math). But in my opinion it should be in a core, like default taxonomy term. We should not use the huge plugins to set this ordinary option.
