comment Creating “static” taxonomies to choose from, inside custom post type?
This would ensure that the default values always existed, but it wouldn't stop a user editing them or creating new ones (which I believe is what qwerty was after). If you could prevent a user from editing/adding/removing terms, you could create the default terms manually and leave it at that - that would save having to check the term exists on every page load.

I don't think that codex page is suggesting that a dedicated sub-directory improves security.

comment Wordpress login security
As an added layer of security for the paranoid you can password protect wp-admin/ directory (being sure to exclude the admin-ajax.php used by some front-facing plug-ins.). While this won't protect wp-login.php (though you could do that too). This adds a layer which is completely independent of WordPress.
