    @prusswan The fact that it might be taken to refer to the interface name (the tag has no description) is probably another good reason to get rid of it -- should we have tags like wlp6so or em1 too? wifi + lan should cover it...actually I notice lan only has one question, so a lot of those wlan ones probably do involve wlan0.

There aren't that many questions. I think the best approach here is to manually retag them and let the system purge the tag.
