#51264 new defect (bug)

There is no option to remove default_term using register_taxonomy() or unregister_taxonomy()

  1. I registered a new taxonomy using register_taxonomy() function.
  1. I set default_term.
  1. After that i removed default_term (I changed my mind).

The function register_taxonomy() did not remove default_term. The default_term is still selected.

It's not possible to clear old value of default_term by register_taxonomy().

The function unregister_taxonomy() also doesn't work.

If we know that default_term already exists. We can use delete_option to remove default_term, but in my opinion its not a good solution. The delete_option should be build-in in register_taxonomy() function or/and unregister_taxonomy() function.
