Since the [best-practices] tag was banned, a handful of synonym tags have been creeping onto SO in its place. For example, [bestpractices], [programming-practices] and [patterns-and-practices].

Are these considered to be synonymous, or is there a fine line between them that makes some of these OK but [best-practices] not? If the former, then should they be added to the ban list?
