One can search/filter on both the tags and the description. If that
doesn't kick up the appropriate packages, then I suggest that the
descriptions for those packages need to be fixed. Tags that apply to
only a few packages are probably too specialized (heh).

Alternatively, if people decide that "field of use" is a legitimate
category for tags, then "specialized" is probably not the correct term;
at least that's not what comes to my mind.
