Cross site collection navigation
Current term set based solution is not usable at all in real life multi site collection scenarios.
SharePoint hub sites ,which shipped earlier this year, provide a configurable cross-site navigation control. More information: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-SharePoint-Blog/Organize-your-intranet-with-SharePoint-hub-sites/ba-p/174081

During our customer projects, we had the same issue regarding to SharePoint cross site collection navigation. Therefore, we implement a solution based on terms that allows you to navigate through site collections and web applications. We used the SharePoint suite bar to support the best optical and reachable integration. So in regard to Wictors requirements our solutions is manageable because it is based on terms, customizable in central administration and supports permissions within the SharePoint security trimming model.
So if you are interested (as customer) or Microsoft feel free to contact us. Please find here some information’s: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=9DBFD0115B853CAC%21109
We are looking forward to find something similar in SharePoint 2016.

I'd like to extend this suggestion to something called a "Global Navigation". It's a shame it is not in the product yet. It doesn't necessarily have to be built on top of term sets. The important thing is that it exits, is manageable, customizable, supports audiences and permissions.
