Thanks for reading the words and not adding to there meaning :)

I too do not encourage changing current tags to some other tag. Only with depreciated tags would I encourage there replacement with more current tag use.

Possible problems are that the contributor does not have good English skills and maybe reactant to enter into that problem area combined with the problem of tagging.
