we could do this also with a changed definition. We would assume everything to be tagged according to the new definition and if it doesn’t fit it should be corrected, and people could be referred to the wiki ;-)

On the other hand I agree it is a hard step, and transitioning via a new tag would be more sane / cause few problems.

Paul mentioned Linux Kernel changes but it isn’t really comparable, because the Kernel is not something depending on the user actions/adoption, it is decided top down and the users ideally will not even notice changes. Changing a tag definition is more like changing the interpretation of a code word in legislation, e.g. the meaning of “must” or “should” (simple examples, excuse my ignorance of english legislation, but I hope you understand what I try to say). This is AFAIK never done, because nobody can oversee all the consequences for all legal texts.
