It really comes down to granularity. license-key and product-key are really the same thing, but software-activation is a process and should stay separate. volume-license could be grouped into ...

Do "unrar" and "unzip" deserve their own tags?

IMHO: Nope, we do not need either of these four. Especially not both the compress and the decompress version of the tags. Even if people vote for keeping them I suggest removing at least unrar/unzip

Extending the range of wireless-extender

Seems reasonable. It's done. I've merged and synonymized them, though the lack of tag wiki content both made this painless and made me sad.

Do "unrar" and "unzip" deserve their own tags?

I think that there are cases when having the specific tags would help. I think the extra decompression tags are overkill. Just have zip, rar, and gzip and then make compression and extraction for ...

Do "unrar" and "unzip" deserve their own tags?

I'd give a differing view here. There's specific unrar and unzip binaries in common use, so this is not your classic meta-tag. This would be like demanding we kill off the 7zip tag, IMO.
