Yeah, but in Australia they do not use "boutique" to refer to any shop
neither. Still people think it should be removed for this reason.

Tagging is done in British-English, if the word used in the tagging
means something else in your language, too bad. You have to make sure
that the editors have a proper translation for the tag in your

Furthermore tagging is open. People should be able to use the word
they feel describes the feature the best. Preferably they should
document the value as good as possible. But there should not be a
committee of X people saying, we do not understand the difference,
let's get rid of it.
