We have both and - does it make sense to have these as separate tags, or should we merge them? If so, which one would be preferred?

I have wondered about this before, but as the tag is currently defined, they are not synonyms. The tag is specifically about the process of assigning an identifier to an astronomical object. can be used to talk about any of the technical terms used in astronomy, aside from just those unique identifiers assigned to astronomical objects. If you see the tag used in the wrong way, please help the asker by retagging the question.
