I don't like this title. How about

+ Programs which are used standalone, and not in some "processing chain".

All the tags also need a one-line description (which usually is even
harder to write).

This is needed for UIs where we do not want to expose the (usually
confusing) tag title, but don't want to waste too much screen space
for the full description.
