Given a deep hierarchy of terms, such as Canada > British Columbia > Vancouver > East Vancouver > Strathcona, it is not currently possible to navigate to Strathcona via Manage > Taxonomies > Places unless you already know that Canada is the top parent term - then the user must select Canada, and drill down through multiple screens using the Narrower Term (NT) links to get to Strathcona (or by manipluating the URL by hand). Not all editors working with terms will necessarily know the top-level parent terms, and this is a cumbersome way to have to navigate.

Suggestion is that ALL terms, regardless of level in the hierarchy, be listed in the /places taxonomy list - Parent terms should continue to include information about number of children beside them (this is useful), but all terms should be visible, so a user could navigate to Strathcona directly.

This feature, for it to be useful, depends on the other usability improvements in #5406 and #5408 - without these, the taxonomy list page might become more difficult to navigate if all terms, regardless of hierarchy, were visible.
