Oh, I understand this tag.

I was just concerned that other mappers might misuse the tag if it isn't

I know that as a new user (just a few months ago!) I would often just try
typing in words in the ID editor,
and picking the tag that looked right. Who has time to follow the link to
the wiki for everything?
So it's a good idea if the tag name is as unambiguous as possible.
