This has already been mentioned here:
There hasn't been a change yet it seems.
Do we really need
live-cd, live-usb, livedvd, and live-environment?
It seems that is a bit of overkill.
I can understand there is some sort of separation, because of what media the live environment is on, but these could really all be migrated together into one tag. For instance
live-boot, live or into an existing one.

Merge them all into
live-environment, the tag wiki/excerpt is already written with the correct information about its propose:
Its a kind of boot which directly loads the OS without actually installing it. Its good for trying out and demonstration purposes and for kiosks.

I disagree with Seth to create a tag
live-media. I think the distinction between a Live USB and a Live CD or DVD is sometimes important...
Also I disagree with Braiam to merge them into
live-environment. For me, the Live environment is the system booted from a live medium.
My suggestion is to have the following tags:
live-disk for problems with creating or booting Ubuntu from a DVD or CD
live-usb for live bootsticks and problems with creating or booting a USB stick.
live-environment for problems related to the live system itself.
I don't know what you think, but for me this is the most logical approach I can currently think of.

live-mediaprobably makes more sense than live-boot.
