What is the reason for removing the retag link for users with full editing rights?

I used to see a retag link below other people's questions on Stack Overflow, but now it's missing!

Instead, I only see link | edit | flag there now.

What happened to retag?

You earned enough reputation (2k+) to grant you full editing powers. Accordingly, the retag link you used to see has been replaced with a full fledged edit link.

Clicking the edit link will allow you to both retag the question as well as edit its title/body. Use your editing powers wisely to improve the site!

The only thing left to do now is wait until you earn at least 10k+ reputation, at which point you'll see a super-secret inline "edit tags" link in addition to the regular "edit" link under the question.

if i edit only to add tag also its appearing as edited xx mins ago with my name.I hate that. – Padma Kumar Mar 9 '12 at 7:57
@Padma: It has always appeared that way, even if you used the "retag" link. All edits are saved in the revision history of a post, no matter how small. – Cody Gray Mar 9 '12 at 7:57
I actually made a screenshot of the "super-secret inline "edit tags" link", and wanted to advice to use this. I was not aware I had this only since I passed the 10k! so +1 for your complete answer. – stema Mar 9 '12 at 8:01
And the official reasoning in Why is inline tag editing not available with retag privileges? – Arjan May 3 '12 at 5:50
