I was adding tags to
Satellite tracking telescope integrated program in Matlab and included the frames tag with 24 questions.
Then I noticed there also existed
eci with 5 questions, and ecef with 2 questions that are also tagged eci.
It seems that those 5 could easily be covered by the frames tag and that we don't need the two more specific ones, very often people want to convert between one and the other.
Shall I just retag the five with frames and let the eci and ecef sort-of disappear when the clock strikes twelve?
update: I'm going to open up this question a little by mentioning that the coordinates tag is also being actively used in this constellation of concepts:

So this was originally a really short yes, and I realize now that was unclear. I had intended it to be a "yes" to uhoh's last question about retagging. After Pearson's comment, I've changed my mind. It seems maybe we should deliberate longer to find a better solution that doesn't wipe out more familiar terminology.

These two systems are fundamentally different and refer to two different things, and if I understand the question correctly, it is not possible to merge and combine their tags.
