I must be missing something obvious so far, because I don't see
why it would be helpful at all.  What's wrong with filtering
on the tag [emacs]?  Currently I do that, and there are really
only two SE sites I bother to check for that tag: SO, SuperUser.

And you can trivially set a filter to check all sites for that
tag (or for any combination of tags, e.g. [emacs] [elisp]
[lisp] [common-lisp]).

How would adding a third, "Emacs", site improve things for
anyone?  Just one more site to check for Emacs Q & A.
I looked at the proposal for the new site, and at the
"discussion" of it, but I haven't seen any good arguments
in support of it, so far.
