Absolutely! If you know that you need to create a new tag, finding other questions to which the new tag applies is going to help the New Tag Deletionists understand that the creator has given the tag some thought and has shown effort towards making the tag useful.

In this specific instance, a new tag is totally called for. Nobody likes an ambiguous tag.
