Most actions are reversible: delete/undelete, edit/rollback, close/open, protect/unprotect, vote, etc. But tag synonymization isn't. There are cases where the community thought an idea was fine just to discover years later that it was not.
This can only be addressed by a moderator, which can take time and effort from the team. Since moderators are supposed to do as little as possible, community shouldn't bother them if they can clean up their own mess.
