I'd agree, except there's a bit missing. "As long as it is not
intuitively wrong for a large minority."  Not something that applies
in this case, but there are examples where large numbers of people can
get totally the wrong idea by looking at a tag alone.  It would be
nice in those cases if we could find a more neutral term, even if it
is not the one that the majority would think of first.
