If we do this the way you want, it would be like fighting against the tide. I would rather remove or at least merge it with (after cleaning) and drop the usage of as single channel sound (is that even useful?).

  • Hmm, I've gone deeper into the rabbit hole and also found [stereo], [5.1], [clicking-sound], [surround-sound] and [audio]. I'm gonna edit my question to reflect this

Why not rename mono to mono-audio tag? This way in the future no one will think of using this tag when asking a question related to mono-framework.

  • I did actually have this as a suggestion, but based on upvotes/comments on Braiam's answer I changed it.

  • I'm in agreement with @Braiam. I've also found other tags that need cleanup. See my edited question
