What's the difference between the [import] and [data-import] tags?

As far as I can tell, these tags are functionally identical.

I've taken a mix of questions from each tag and jumbled them into a list.

Can you guess which question has which tag?

I couldn't.

Can we merge the [import] tag into the [data-import] tag?

I feel that favoring the [data-import] tag is more descriptive.

UPDATE: It's been done, community opinion was clear and the tags have been merged (so no need to vote anymore :)

    +1 for merging but I would make import the master.

  • it was suggested this answer be deleted as the deed has been done. I'm leaving it though so the record of the poll is retained (and closing the Q instead). Sep 10, 2013 at 20:48
