I would like to request a synonym for a tag on the main site, , because people are using this tag to talk about the Apple iOS Map Kit framework. But that framework is not called MKMapKit. It is just Map Kit.

Yes, all of the Map Kit framework classes, protocols and functions start with the MK prefix (e.g. MKMapView, MKAnnotation, etc.), but there's no such thing as MKMapKit and to refer to it as such is a misnomer. In the iOS world, it would be equivalent to referring to "Core Location Framework" as the "CLCoreLocation framework" (which, of course, it's not).

There is another, well established tag, , which could be used instead.

Done. You're right, the MKMapKit thing always bothered me.
