  I agree that removing the non standard tags is almost always OK.

  What is the advantage of removing them all with an automated edit? 
Their presence doesn't damage anything, and editors can add those tags 
to their passive removal list.

   The TIGER name expansion resulted in a large benefit by removing a 
manual task.   Changing unused tags would only add to the history file 
for a small benefit.
