When should one use the ethnicity tags and ?

Should they be used on any question which only applies to one, such as this question which talks about a broad custom with a lot of details, but which only applies to Ashkenazim?

  • You might wish to split the question into two along the lines of the two answers posted thus far: they seem like two separate questions, no?

  • Actually, I've edited out the second question per meta.judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/335/…; please feel free to ask it separately.

In my opinion, yes, they should be used whenever the question's subject applies to only (e.g.) Ashk'nazim. (That's if feasible. Each question can have only five tags.)
