Should all questions be cotagged since the legal status of the vast majority of its rules is custom and not halacha? Is there a specific set of mourning questions that should rather bear for technical reasons?

Generally the set of rules is referred to as nihugei aveilus rather than hilchos aveilus for this reason.

As I mentioned elsewhere, I don't think the tag should apply to all halacha questions: only to those that don't have a halacha tag of narrower scope. The same for the tag: IMO it should apply not to all minhag questions but rather only to those that don't have a minhag tag of narrower scope. I think (though I'm willing to be convinced otherwise) is such a minhag tag of narrower scope.

  • (and @IsaacMoses's comment on the question) - So until that is figured out just let the tags fall where they may?
