In Implementing new tag for version 4 of ArcGIS API for JavaScript? it looked like the community wanted (or at least were not suggesting any alternatives) to phasing out the tag (1,558 questions) in favour of version tagging with (3 questions), (167 questions) and (82 questions) instead.

Since then I have noticed that continues to be applied to new questions both on its own, and in combination with one or more version tags.

Should we continue trying to implement version tags on ArcGIS API for JavaScript questions as per the earlier Meta Q&A, roll them all back into , or do something else?

Given that:

it might make sense to roll the 2 and 3 tags into if this is possible.

However, version 4 of the ArcGIS JavaScript API seems to be substantially different to the previous versions, with most classes and functions apparently re-written from scratch. So should remain as a separate tag.

For version 4 questions, I'd suggest that the tag on its own makes it pretty clear which version and software are being used.
