I'll be able to create tags on Stack Overflow soonish. So, before I attempt to create these tags at some point in the future: ,

I'll first ask meta why they don't exist now and what can I expect to happen when/if I create them? Should I create them? Why or why not?

For reference, I was searching for an answer to a particular problem and arrived at this question/answer. CSS overflow-y:visible, overflow-x:scroll

Related? Can tags be too specific?

They don't exist because they don't meet the requirements for tags, specifically, the "A tag must be able to stand alone in a question" requirement. and cannot exist in a question without the tag applied as well. Hence it shouldn't be created.
