Does SP 2010 have any support for taxonomy update workflows?
Or if not directly, is it possible to develop something like that using the Sharepoint API?
What would be needed:

  • taxonomy change proposals
  • notifying interested persons about proposed taxonomy changes
  • accepting / rejecting the changes
  • finding the files to be affected by proposed changes.

To my knowledge it doesn't existing, but it would be quite easy to build ontop of a standard list where you configure the workflow, and then upon approval you can from you list event receiver add the new taxonomy data or change the existing taxonomy.
