What are tag synonyms? How do they work?

I am trying to get things tagged I get instead. Why?

I'm sure people familiar with the subject understand the difference between these two; even the info on the xml-schema tag says "Not to be confused with the more specific "XML Schema" or XSD[...]".

It's a tag synonym of xml-schema: So whenever you use it will be changed into instead.

They're not. One is a generalization of the other. Who determines this and can it be undone? – Petru Gardea Aug 20 '12 at 13:09
They are. :) Perhaps they should not be. If you think so you can always open a discussion here clearly stating why they should not be tag synonyms and that you like to see this synonymization reversed. – Bart Aug 20 '12 at 13:12
