Should there be a tag for Microsoft Remote Procedure Call or does the DCE tag suffice for people? I was running a search and can find nothing on Stack Overflow or Super User Stack Exchange sites. What are people's opinions on the issue?
Here are the tag wiki excerpts from Stack Overflow:
The Distributed Computing Environment (DCE) is a framework and toolkit for developing client/server applications, developed in the early 1990s.
Remote Procedure Call (RPC) is an approach to interprocessor or distributed communication wherein a set of services or procedures are exposed to remote clients. RPC is both a general concept for interprocessor communication and shorthand for Sun's original implementation …
It seems to me that the "dce" tag is relevant only to developers, and, as such, belongs only on Stack Overflow. The "rpc" tag is a bit of an edge case — the RPC protocol per se is pretty much off-topic at Super User, but there seem to be just barely enough questions about manifestations of RPC at the user level to justify having such a tag here. I don't see any reason to delve into individual vendors' versions of a programming tool — notice that Super User doesn't have a "sunrpc" tag, either (while Stack Overflow does).
If you're talking about the possibility of developing a client-server configuration using MSRPC, your question(s) probably belong on Stack Overflow, and you should try to get the tag created there. If you're talking about using a product that uses the protocol, it seems unlikely that your questions (if on-topic for Super User) would need to be tagged to that level of specificity.
