Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

For all these questions:

I think we need to add the tag (and/or )

This will make it easier for people to find questions dealing with the openDatabase() feature in HTML5.

I would do it myself, but that might cause the unnecessary bumping of old questions.

this tag already exists, so I don't know why you're flagging and bountying. Have a look – Jeff Atwood Sep 24 '11 at 22:09
@JeffAtwood I know it exists. I created it (see here: I just don't want to bump a bunch of old questions for no reason. – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Sep 25 '11 at 4:50

There is no way to "automatically" add a tag to posts. So the only way to do this is via editing.

I don't really think the tag is that essential, honestly, so I'd say just add it (via standard editing) to the 10 most recent / best questions that are examples and be done with it.

Go right ahead and edit them as you're able. I suggest doing ~10 at a time, to avoid fatigue...

But really, don't worry too much about bumping on Stack Overflow; if you're taking your time and addressing any other issues with the tags (or perhaps even the titles...) while editing, you shouldn't be able to flood the main page for long. Remember, bumping is a feature!
