Reference for the features of WordPress® (either by core, plugin or theme).

|Link term to Page.||
You can link any term to a Page. This means that the link to the term will point to the URL of the Page, allowing you total freedom with the prettiest Permalinks ever. The Page "knows" the term it links to via a custom field, normally
|Multiple term parentage.||
The ZYX Term Meta plugin allows any term (either category, post tag or any other) to have any number of parent terms, even if the term belongs to a non-hierarchical taxonomy.
Different post types may have different sets of post capabilities assigned to them.
|post type features.||
The so-called post type features are flags (boolean values) that mark if a given part/meta box in the admin/edit section will be used or not.
WordPress stores different types of data in the posts table, not only "regular" posts but also Pages, attachments, menu items, post revisions and other custom data. Each of this types of data are called "post types".
A term can display different descriptions when listed from different relative terms (either parent or children).
A term can display different names when listed from different parent terms.
A term can use different custom orders when listed from different terms.
|Single template by term.||
You can select a single template to be assigned by default to all posts belonging to a term.
We could say that term groups resemble WordPress custom taxonomies, but there are lots of differences, and term groups are more flexible (and complex).
Capabilities indicate if a user (or role) can do a given task, access a given feature, etc.
