That's a great idea, especially for things like profiles. A lot of them
point to web pages that no longer exist ... maybe we should have a
default expiration on content like that.

But the FAQs and courses seem to be generally useful.

Good suggestion. That might work well for some pages.  For some others,
it might be better to document why a certain choice of tags was chosen
(which can also be a launch pad for discussion).   These may be for
things like ease of use or accessibility. Knowing the reason for a
decision might make it less likely that we'll lose consistency as we
move forward.

Also, we'll try not to be too detailed with the guide ... it should be
quick to go through.
