I usually see questions regarding several functions being deprecated and what their replacement is.

Then I thought, do we need a tag? When Drupal 9 is released there might also be a lot of new questions regarding deprecation, since they're removing all deprecated code from Drupal 8.

Possible candidates:

  • @kiamlaluno, Don’t we need this tag? I see you removed it. – Jdrupal Aug 3 at 16:15

As you listed, there are already some questions that could benefit from such a tag.

I could also see the tag receiving more use in the future (like with Drupal 9, as you mentioned), and I think it would be helpful for users seeking to upgrade a project, since they could search by the tag.

Rather than pointing people to documentation (harder to find solution) or Drupal Module Upgrader (which requires an install), we should work to categorize questions, so that users can search using tags and find what they are looking for in a few seconds.

I think the tag would be useful and should be added.
