Yes, but I didn't offer any particular opinion on that. It seems good enough, although I'd remove, or move out, the references to etags commands: the section is named Xref, tags-* commands are not part of it.

With the two new additions, we could feel more confident doing that.

There's no direct counterpart to tags-search, but I think it can be adequately replaced with dired-do-find-regexp or project-or-external-find-regexp.

In any case, changing terminology in that subsection means a serious
rewrite of it in its entirety.  I see no reason for such an effort.  I
moved the offending sentence to a footnote (with some explanation why
we change terminology in this subsection), so people who already know
what "tag" is will need not stumble upon this.

Fair enough. Thanks for considering it.
