Can you link to the thread in the archives of the list, or is it (like 
most of our lists, for no good reason) private?

I am curious what the arguments against it are. It seems like a good 
idea to me?

But I do not use Scan at all.

I do not use facetting through SRU at all, but if/when I do, I believe 
I'd use displayTerm if it was there.

The feelings against including displayTerm are so strong as to suggest that it should be deprecated in Scan.

So, my question for you all is: do any of you actually use the displayTerm in your responses?  If not, Iíll happily drop my arguments.  If so, can you provide a good use case?
