I created a new tag about a month ago for tagged PDFs, with a substantial tag wiki (see end of this post), alongside the same tags I created for SO and tex.sx. I did so because there are quite a lot of questions that arise on each of these sites that benefit from information on the other two sites. Given the amount of confusion about Tagged PDFs on each of the sites, I thought it was worth investing quite a bit of time in this.
All of the tags I applied were deleted, making these tag wikis orphans. This was done by fixer12434 with the reason 'deleted tagged-pdf tag; level of specificity not useful on SU'. I do not understand this remark, nor have I found any background for the reversals of these edits. Could fixer1234 explain this, or maybe someone else can explain.
The matching tag wikis on the other two sites are at https://tex.stackexchange.com/tags/tagged-pdf/info and https://stackoverflow.com/tags/tagged-pdf/info

Tagged PDF is a form of embedded metadata for PDFs that allows support for bookmarks and copy-and-paste on text, and gives a namespace for Adobe's DOM that is leveraged by such technologies as layers, interactive PDFs, and RichMedia Annotations.
Viewers and Editors for PDFs that support Tagged PDFs
The most important PDF readers that support bookmarks, copy-and-paste, embedded RichMedia, or Dynamic PDFs are:

- Mac OSX: Preview.app
- Linux/gtk: evince
- Windows: foxit-reader
The most important PDF editing tools are:

Other technologies for generating and manipulating Tagged PDFs programmatically are documented on Stack Exchange tagged-pdf tag wiki (for instance, the iText Java library) and the TeX & Friends tagged-pdf tag wiki.
