Per the positive consensus of this request, I've been spending the last couple of weeks removing the tag from questions which use it, and replacing it with the more specific tags I pointed out wherever applicable.

There was one locked merge stub using the tag, which I flagged for moderators to remove, and they did so.

The tag has now been purged from the system, and is no longer in use, making this request .
