In my opinion it should not. There is a distinction. If someone said powder printing to me, I would think of powder + glue printers. Metal powder is pulverized metal that are bound with an insanely expensive laser.
That said no everyone will tag with that distinction in mind. Which has little to no impact.
It could also be argued that it is a subset. IE I ...
I'm not sure, but I think they came about before anyone had the authority to suggest synonyms.
I went ahead and created a synonym for heatbed and heated-bed and merged the questions. I'll do the same for HBP. Thank you for bringing this up.
The tags support & support-structures are in fact referring to exactly the same thing!

Ah, I think I see, and I may have initially misunderstood. I had understood (in the chat) that you wanted a tag for each make/model, but, in fact, you would rather link each make/model back to a printer type, so
P3Steel -> Prusa
Kossel -> Delta
Is that right?
If so, then I am not so sure. I would want to keep some of the p3steel questions to be ...
I have to disagree with this request because the two are technically different (and I mean technically in literal form).
Support material helps define relevance to a specific material type, ie PLA/ABS, PVA, that lime stuff that MakerBot tried selling, wax, etc.
Support structures helps define relevance to the existence of support structure being generated ...
A synonym has been suggested already for the hbp and heated-bed tag. hbp was added to a single post, and in order to create a synonym there needs to be at least 5 posts containing the similar tags. Now that the synonym has been suggested, most of those posts with dual tags can be reduced back to just heated-bed.
Currently, (03/28/2016), we do not have any ...
