... and it was only afterwards I saw Do we really need "online" in tags on a web applications site?

This follows on from Please make [storage] and [image-storage] synonyms of [online-storage] where the suitability of was questioned.

The tag has 14 4 or maybe 10 9 5 Open Qs and no followers. Its Usage guide is:

Commonly refers to computer components and recording media that retain digital data.

Shog9 provided criteria for burnination, summarised as:

  1. Does it describe the contents of the questions to which it is applied?
  2. Is it unambiguous?
  3. Is the concept described even on-topic for the site?
  4. Does the tag add any meaningful information to the post?
  5. Does it mean the same thing in all common contexts?

To which the answers for seem to me to be, in order: Not necessarily, No , Could be, Yes, No. This based on current usage and the answers might differ if some tags were changed to more appropriate ones.

Since doubt about the value of retaining the tag has been raised, my Q is:
