What's with all the Tag Management Request titles?

Did I miss the memo about this being required. Is this mandatory now for retag / synonym requests? Is this something someone thought was useful? Something else?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Some people don't have enough reputation in the given tags to suggest synonyms, especially if there are very close tags involved (ex. widget/widgets) – simchona Jun 19 '12 at 19:54

I've created 12 such questions (all except 1) last 24 hours. I'm done now. (Added ignored tags, that's why I find them). The Tag Management Request titles is because I have to vary myself. If I create more type Merge [smooth] ⇒ [smoothing] titles. Then the system would not accept my question. Error message, this question have already been asked.

Aha. Didn't see it was all you. Just looked at the first couple I find and some another nick. So what you are saying is that the filter is crewing things up? – PeeHaa Jun 19 '12 at 20:01
Yes, creating my filter makes me find them. (Sure I don't want to read questions with strange general tags like merge validation hardware values editor post remove text) – r4. Jun 19 '12 at 20:08
I have now merged 3 questions (pluralization 's) to one. Feel free to vote on it since nobody does. – r4. Jun 19 '12 at 20:38
