Turned my comment into an answer so it can be downvoted as well. I'd vote for option 3, that is to say a new tag els-cas. It seems to me that elsarticle and cas-... classes are sufficiently different to warrant a new tag. elsarticle is thoroughly LaTeX2e, while els-cas makes heavy use of LaTeX3's expl3 and xparse. It might help to add cas-sc and cas-dc as ...

In essence, you receive reputation by contributing to the main site. This is achieved by any one of the following: Ask a question that shows you've done some research, but still need help solving. This should include a minimal working example highlighting the main problem and be isolated to that problem only. Upvotes on questions earn you +5 in reputation. ...

There are only around 500 questions altogether, 60 of which have both tags. If someone is asking about putting text in the margins an answer may quite possibly use marginnote even if the questioner had not known of that package. So I don't think it is really possible to separate these things as tags on questions. So I would suggest that we merge the tags ...

Good (which is rare enough) tags are useful to search for questions, and also sometimes to decide if a question has a topic that doesn't interest me at all. But they shouldn't be needed to understand a question and shouldn't be used to explain the meaning or background of a question. If someone wants to know why some code behaves as it behaves this should ...

Regardless of the purpose and its usefulness, I believe the [why] tag is the textbook example of meta tags. The reason meta-tags are a problem is that they do not describe the content of the question. They describe some other aspect of the question, like the author’s skill level, or the author’s motivation for asking it, or generally what “kind” of ...

I agree link and hyperlink should be merged. the tag wiki for link says explicitly it is about hyperlinks, and I don't think (this century) people do (or should) refer to non hyperlinked cross references as "links". I don't think the suggested distinction that hyperlink should only be used for external references is valid. An in-document link is a ...

I haven't really decided yet if a [Why] tag would be useful at all or if this could really offer to the community of TeX.SX but I will post this answer that is mostly an explanation on the reason I made this question and on why (at the time I did the question) I thought it could be a tag that can offer but also why it could be a problematic tag (and thus ...

Tag elsevier seems a good solution rather than specific tags for each separate class, template package, etc., as it seems they are expanding them. I have recently seen this one for journals with "microarticles" like Results in Physics. It's the first I know that includes the full "Elsevier heading" in the template: If they keep expanding, seems better to ...
