Disclaimer: This issue may have been discussed before, but I couldn't find it. Also, I don't know too much about the intricacies of tagging.
I've noticed quite a few questions asking for differentiation between two similar verb tenses. Here are some examples:
One might think these questions would all be similarly tagged, but they're not, partly because some tags are specific to the tenses themselves (e.g.,
future tense or
present perfect tense). Therefore, two very similar questions may not get tagged similarly, simply because one question looks backwards, and the other looks forwards.
I did notice there was a
tenses tag that appears in one of those five questions, but there's no wiki description yet on what that represents.
I wondered if
verb tense choice might be a useful tag. It seems like, for questions such as those referenced, the fact that the O.P. is inquiring "Which is preferable?" is more significant than which particular tense the O.P. happens to be asking about.
There may be a better solution than the one I've proposed, but the fact that such similar questions do not have matching tags suggests there might be room for some improvement.
