I've had an issue with the word-problem tag for a while. It's currently being used as a replacement or co-tag for:
Of these, only the last is what the tag should actually be used for, according to the tag wiki. However, even if it was only used for mathematical puzzles, there's another problem!
"Word problem" suggests the type of mathematical problem in textbooks. And as we've discussed before, those are off-topic. For the ones that are on-topic, mathematics is already a perfectly suitable tag, and word-problem just talks about the style it's presented in - sounds dangerously close to a meta tag to me.
So we have a tag that's currently being used for three vastly different things, where it is valid it's unnecessary, and it only describes the presentation style rather than the actual content.
My question is this: Should we get rid of the tag? (If you can think of any reasons to keep it, please indicate them in an answer).
