I think we should merge and into a new tag, .

Here's how we're using the tags right now:

Most of the questions that have only one tag or the other seem to be about transitivity in general, or are confused. For example, this intransitive-only question is really about transitive verbs―the OP is making a common mistake, confusing transitivity with the phenomenon we see in verb pairs like 教わる・教える. This intransitive-only question is really about transitivity, and this intransitive-only question is about both transitive and intransitive verbs.

It seems like it'd be better in almost every case to merge them into one tag.

I merged the tags.

It's been about a week, and although there are only two upvotes, no one's objected, and jkerian agreed on chat that it was probably a good idea.
