Do we need tags [dfa] and [nfa]?

I think finite-automata is specific enough, even for questions that aim towards getting a DFA. That is because determinism is (usually) not the issue; every NFA can be algorithmically converted into a ...

Can program-verification be made a synonym of software-verification?

This fell through the cracks. Nobody ever made the argument that they should be different, I know the topic and I can't spot any difference as to how these tags are used, so I've merged them.
