I think it might be useful to allow flagging directly on a tag.

Tag with flag

This could be used to indicate that a given tag should be merged with another one. While we already have a way to discuss tags that should be merged, sometimes they reappear.

There could also be a way to automatically fill out a retag-request question.

Flagged tag


I think posting a question on meta (as we do now) is sufficient.

As for them reappearing, this is aimed to solve that

    +1 There are times when community input on a tag-merge request has brought something up that made the request a bad idea – squillman Mar 1 '10 at 19:53
  • +1 That would reduce the use of a flag on a tag. I mainly asked the question for the second part though, having a way to automatically fill out a [retag-request] There might also be other reasons for flagging a tag, which we won't find out until we have that ability. – Brad Gilbert Mar 1 '10 at 20:02

Why not just flag the questions and write that it is the [foo] tag that concerns you?
