It's too generic to be useful.

Tags are categories. You want MySQL configuration questions? You search for [mysql] [configuration]. SQL Server configuration? Search for [sql-server] [configuration]. Works better this way. Why? Because the tags are "normalized". :> – Nick Chammas Feb 21 '12 at 16:24

Some DBMS platforms (e.g. SQL Server) have a feature called 'schema'. Re-tagging inappropriate use to 'database-design' is certainly sensible, but 'schema' itself can mean something quite specific. – ConcernedOfTunbridgeWells Dec 9 '11 at 9:51
+1 for deletion - I'd argue that it is too localized - and that the added complication of the clash with the generally accepted meaning of 'schema' means the bar should be even higher before we accept it as a 'good' tag – Jack Douglas Mar 23 '12 at 15:59
