I thought some of the classification tags were useful. Do you have a
list of all the classification checks to help me reconsider? I don't
show experimental tags.

This particular tag is problematic because it encourages people who
see the tag to change the packaging so that the tag isn't emitted. ( I
have done that in several packages but will undo it as I touch the
packages again and notice.)
