For example, when I come across a tag I believe shouldn't be used, I trawl through past meta questions in a hope of finding burninated tags that are similar. If I find something similar, I submit a burnination request; otherwise I simply clean up the tags and move on. Having a definitive list will substantially speed up this process.
