In regards to Requesting PHP6 cleanup, I noticed that a tag still exists in the system.

Even though no questions exist anymore in the system with the tag, when using the synonym link, it says it already exists.

Would it not be beneficial to create a synonym for -> ?

Note: is listed as a synonym for .

I think you are confused with the message you got. The tag doesn't currently exist, and that is the problem. Read the error message more carefully:

Failed to propose synonym: The suggested edit **must exist** in the system before suggesting it as a synonym!

I'm not sure if there is a real benefit to having a PHP6 tag synonym since PHP6 doesn't actually exist yet, which is why the tag was killed off in the first place. Chances are if a person is coming here to ask a question about PHP6, it probably doesn't belong here.
