I've noticed that the normal required tags such as are already excluded in these lists, but why are the red status tags such as not also excluded? They don't really go to identify which tags the user is active in, only that they post a lot in feature requests and bug reports that get acted upon, as demonstrated by the first page of the Users page:

It's been over-run by status-completed!

I would much rather see another tag they're often involved in there rather than seeing that everyone is involved in the tag. The same could be said for the tag. Although, once MSE comes along, that tag should for the most part die off. For example:

Tim Stone's interesting vs not interesting tags

    I agree. As those tags are only for the status of the bug/feature report, showing them doesn't say anything about the type of questions answered from users, except (for example) they answer to questions asking for something that has been already implemented. – kiamlaluno Jul 1 '12 at 13:47

This change will go out in the next build: required and mod-only tags won't be looked for /users on metas (yay for not having to worry about SO scale performance!).
