Bug in SharePoint 2010 Terms
If you are using Terms to create Site Columns, you'll find that there's a little bug in the way the terms work. If you have multiple levels, i.e. State/City, works fine. If you have a single level, i.e. Country, it DOES NOT WORK when activated through a feature event. You can do it programatically just fine (i.e. a Console application) but it will not work when attempting to create using Feature Activation. The only way to correct is to create a double level - i.e. World, Country but since that hardly fixes it, you have to rely on creating Site Columns - even if you have to replicate them across sites.
