What gave you the idea that everything concerning Emacs
will be on one site?

And so will the questions there that are tagged [emacs].
As well they should, as they might also have other tags
(or content) that is specific to that site.

Nothing prevents you from adding those tags today.
See Emacs-specific tags such as `font-lock', for example.

Migration of questions across sites is manual.  Just more
bother.  Please consider signing up to help maintain and
manage the overhead you're endorsing.

And your envisioned migration scenario applies only for
questions unrelated to anything else, besides Emacs, on
the given site.  Other questions tagged Emacs might well
be more relevant right where they are.  That's one reason
migration is manual.
