Fair enough.  That deserves some sort of IDE tag, but I really don't
think it makes sense to duplicate use::editing and works-with::HTML
under web::. 

Given that these are examples of web::ide, and of course there are
plenty of devel::ide packages, would it make sense to think of the
commercial workflow-integration-framework whosits as IDEs too?
Hence a generic use::ide... probably too much of a stretch.

That's more like it - 15 votes.  I see it is indeed a single package
that claims to do everything you'd want ERP/CRM for, so the most
we'd ever want is an ::erp-crm tag somewhere.  Can we find any
related tiny sets of corporate-IT productivity/workflow-integration 
packages we could merge into some more substantial category?
