How do you tag a question about a namespace (for example, from .NET) whose natural name is longer than the maximum tag length?

My specific example was System.DirectoryServices.Protocols from .NET, but I am sure this is far from the only one.

I don't know anything about that namespace, but aren't there tags that encompass its concepts that are more general? – jonsca Nov 23 '12 at 2:28
The problem is this: there is another namespace which is unfortunately a shorter name (System.DirectoryServices) which works completely differently, and you also want to contrast against non .NET directory service or LDAP programming issues from other languages or frameworks. – SAJ14SAJ Nov 23 '12 at 2:31
Yeah, I was just looking, I see that System.DirectoryServices does have a tag. Not sure what to tell you, then. I suppose abbreviating it somehow and making a good tag wiki to explain for what situations it should be used might work. See if anyone who is active in that area chimes in. – jonsca Nov 23 '12 at 2:37
