I just rolled back a tag edit from a very old question that had added . The tag itself currently has 5 questions and... what is it? Do we need it in addition to ?

The reason I am asking here is because I also noticed that the same user just added the tag to another question and two rollbacks back-to-back seems like something I should get an opinion on. Do we need ? If we do, can someone please edit its wiki?

Edit: Actually, it looks like nearly all of the questions tagged with this were from the same user.

    It was me that added the nuance tags to several questions. I think it came up when I checked for it but I noticed it was only used once so I searched for other questions that asked about nuances and added it to those too to help it along. Thought I was doing the right thing. Oh well (-: Jun 15 '11 at 14:56

    @hippie: No harm done. I just thought it was an odd tag to have around.

I'd say is the better tag for this. It's hard to define what types of differences are nuances as opposed to larger differences, whereas word choice covers the entire spectrum.
