I created for Could a partial space elevator be practical and useful?, but I am wondering if such would be a useful tag. (I do not remember if I read the article/blog post about the evils of meta tags, but I am somewhat concerned that might be a meta tag or at least too general.)

(I will reiterate: I stink at tagging!)

I'm not going to give a name, but it seems like there should be a category for stuff that's on the limit of today's conceptual technology, which would be a better tag than feasibility. But I'm not sure what to name that tag...

Per Undo, I'll suggest the for such operations.

Space business is littered with "feasibility studies". In a way, they mostly investigate the "financial feasibility" rather than technological feasibility. If we were to reflect this business as it is today, we would need to find a way to incorporate this work somehow in a tag, no matter how uncomfortable this may be.
