There has been a long tradition of this mailing list (and, before it
branched off, the talk mailing list) making recommendations on tagging
schemes, so I see no reason to suddenly question this. In this case
the recommended tag is the more popular tag, but there have also been
instances were a fewer used tag was recommended.
