Been doing some tag cleanup recently and noticed this oddity:
Boot utilities for 3 TB hard drives
Now, in this case it almost makes sense since this is very specific to the potential problems that a large hard drive over 2.1 GB poses for booting issues. OTOH, it could get out of control.

no, we definitely do
not want large-hard-drive. Large according to whom? In what time frame?
There is already
hard-drive and gpt so that should suffice.

How about the [2tb-barrier] tag, since that is what it really is?

3tb-hard-drive seems unnecessarily precise to me, however I could see something like large-hard-drive being valid in its place if and only if the large size of the drive is a specific factor in the question.
large-hard-drive isn't necessarily the best name for it, so alternative suggestions are welcome.
(I say this because large could be taken to mean the physical dimensions, for example)
