Save term creation time by default

I would like to see WP save all term creation - and last modified - datetimes by default as term meta.

Easy use case example to see advantage: Ordering Category terms by creation date straight-off instead of making a query for posts and deciding the order that way. Term ID's do not always convey the correct order - especially if data migration/s have been made.

Would also enable a surefire way to publish term creation dates in a term listing instead of having to pull info from posts within said terms.

Would not interfere with existing architecture too much - "too much" because the meta key could be something like "term_date" or "term_created_date" and "term_modified_date" - someone might have used the same keys when creating custom meta.

The addition would not increase DB size or complexity by much.
