I would like to know if it's possible to rename the tags and with the protocols that actually define the behavior-- NSKeyValueObserving and NSKeyValueCoding respectively.

The former pair seems a bit vague while the second one indirectly specifies it's a protocol relevant to the Cocoa framework.

No, I don't think this is a good idea. The terms "key value observing" and "key value coding" are well-understood, and people know how to tag things with those as appropriate. I never refer to these concepts using the specific protocol names, so I see no reason to rename the tags to them.

I think this would cause more confusion than the way things are now.
