I think you mean "objective" here, and throughout this, not 
"subjective". We try as much as possible for the tag definitions to have 
a clear list of requirements -- preferably driven by some data source 
like a script that queries stackalytics -- that can be used in applying 
the tag to a project.

It got a bit *more* subjective, not less subjective :) Or perhaps you 
meant "prescriptive"?
