This question already has an answer here:

I tried to create a tag synonym for and , but I'm denied because I don't have 5 upvotes in the tag.

I think the restrictions should be eased up for high-rep users (say, 10k+) because we are just trying to improve the site. I can't see myself getting 5 votes in the tag and then remembering to suggest the synonym again at a later date, and anyway it just submits the suggestion for community voting - it doesn't actually create the synonym immediately, right?

Any good reason for the strong restrictions?

    The tag synonym system is pretty broken, as it is. It currently requires moderator intervention for almost all meaninful changes. I'm pretty sure this request is a duplicate (I fully support it, however). – Joachim Sauer Apr 9 '13 at 6:58
