I know path is in heavy use, but a few proper mechanical edits (how are those done?) for certain tag combos and a couple years elapsed would eventually take care of it. I don’ think it is something that could be done easily or with a simple edit - but it could be depreciated and retired in a few years. 

Leave it to the noisy American living abroad to cause trouble in Belgium!
