Hidden Taxonomy List
ref - http://sharepointtrac.wordpress.com/2013/10/29/taxonomy-hidden-list/

  1. TaxonomyHiddenList is the hidden list on root web. This list can be viewed by directly navigating the URL http://MyWeb.com/Lists/TaxonomyHiddenList
  2. This list contains all the terms and keyword used for the site collection
  3. This list is used for caching the taxonomy terms. SharePoint uses this list so that no need to query the managed meta data service all the time
  4. When we use the Taxonomy term, an item is get created in this list. The id of this item is the WSSID. This WSSID is of type Counter and can be used for querying purpose
  5. For the taxonomy terms which are still not used in the site, we will not find the item for it in this list. So no WSSID for that term.
