This feature is intended to make the feature request in #5407 more manageable for end users.

#5407 suggests listing all terms in the taxonomy list for better navigation, so users do not have to know the top-level parent of a given term to be able to navigate to it via the GUI.

However, if there are 1000+ terms in use, this can make navigating via the pager extremely onerous.

A suggested fix is a simple auto-complete search bar, limited to indexing the authorized name for all terms, to allow users to navigate more easily. This could be achieved by implementing the treeview on the /list page for a given taxonomy, and including the search tab in the treeview, which searches only titles in the treeview. Implementing it this way would also keep the search option available when users are viewing a specific term, if feature #5406 is implemented. The current treeview search for descriptions does not include auto-complete, but having the treeview, and the ability to use boolean search enhancers (such as * and ~, as is currently possible in the description treeview search) would mitigate the need for this.
