You'll find that in most cases it's the rather more pedestrian case of
no one noticing a particular message and/or being too busy.

usertag is a request@ feature, not a control@ feature, so it's kind of
documenting the wrong thing.

I personally haven't applied it or fixed it because I missed the mail
with the patch from Martin and hadn't seen it when looking back
through (and it wasn't tagged patch either).

That said, if you send this bug a patch which:

1) creates a new wml webpage which documents usertags and (hopefully!)
starts on documenting user-categories

2) adds links from server-request and server-control to the page

tag the bug patch, and remind me if I forget to apply it within a
week, I'll see that it gets applied and the bug gets closed.
