Allow tag synonyms where the source has more instances than the target

I just had this one: Wanted to add a synonym for stl that points to standard-library. Most people, when tagging stl have questions about std::vector, std::list and friends, that were originally part of the "STL" but are now part of the C++ Standard Library. But the stl tag is more frequently used than standard-library, yet it makes no sense to have the mapping the other way around.

What is the reason to have that restriction on "appears more times"?

  • FYI: You can still post a request on Meta to get the synonyms reversed. – Jon Seigel Aug 23 '10 at 17:31
