In my opinion the options are:
- deprecate roundtrip in favour of 2 tags with a generally agreed naming
convention (best at this point)
- keep roundtrip and closed_loop with the wiki definition I did change
(relations must be updated accordingly)
I read many of you asked a revert, I just want to point out that is not a
resolution because tag is currently messed up
