Months after this question was asked, Deusovi proposed burninating the [tag:word-problem] tag. If the tag were burninated, that would address this question. However, there has been no action on that in the past year-and-two-thirds. Until that proposal is acted on affirmatively, the proposal to merge or better distinguish these tags should remain active for discussion, as I believe it remains a valid question. Burninating one tag is not the only possible solution to this question.
