Yes, we need to show that it can be varied, but when we are trying to

will not know that they can just do $$, which I think is the most
common usage for dollar quoting.


I don't see the need to include $tag$ in _every_ example: a few examples of $tag$ rather than $$ plus a clear definition of what a "dollar quote" is allowed to be should be sufficient to let users know what they can use, and the rest of the time we ought to use whatever is syntactically clearest.
