# Should we have a bohmian mechanics tag?

The question Quasiparticles in Bohmian mechanics led me to ask the question in the title.

Should there be tags like for individual interpretations of quantum mechanics, or should there be an umbrella tag for questions that are about interpretations?

In my opinion - no (neither I would add ). And anyway, for now the tag would be to specific.

Moreover, the question itself seems to me rather suited for physics.SE (as I don't see its really research-level, just someone curious about an interpretation/theory).

However, a tag (or just for use in + ) would be useful IMHO.

Well, about the question not being research level: it does not look trivial to me, esp. since I don't even know what's the status of the bohmian approach to quantum _many-body_ systems (I mean, the topic is quasi-particles, right?). But that's maybe very well-known, and I'm just too ignorant about this stuff... In any case, I don't think it's just philosophy, and it seems at least as good as several others I've seen on this site...

@YvanVelenik: It was the reason why I refrained from downvoting the question or redirected it to physics.SE.
