Question: How can I access a taxonomy's description in the "Rules" module? When I create a new taxonomy entity I can only set the name of the term, I'd like to also add the term's description.

Goal (in case I'm doing this entirely wrong!): Anonymous submission of new taxonomy terms with a description, for approval by a role. When node type of "new term" is approved, it copes it to a taxonomy vocabulary and then deletes the original node.
