I wonder whether you will ever get the right answers to this type of
questions on this mailing list.
Only if people on this list have used those tags themselves or
interacted with people using the "wrong" tags you might get an idea of
what is going on.
Otherwise, it seems to me that we just might guess the correct answer.

The only people that know what they meant with a certain tag (that is
not documented) are those that used it. But finding the people that
used to tag and contact them is a daunting task.
