What am I missing? Of *course* we should have redundant data, and that's
exactly the right way to migrate from one set of tags to another. When the
tags are truly redundant (widespread support for new tags in all tools, all
old tags accompanied by new ones), then we can mass delete - too easy.

It also occurs to me that highlighting renderer support will encourage
migration to new tags.
