Off-topic tag for "Four Taoist mountains"
Section 3 lists four Taoist mountains in addition to the five listed in the first section. With some reason, somebody put a tag on that section, saying that it may stray too far from the article topic. Does anyone know why these mountains are included here? Are they, perhaps, included on some official or traditional list of sacred mountains that includes more than just the five Taoist and four Buddhist mountains that are described in the lead? There are also the "other famous Taoist mountains" listed in section 3.5, and Mount Lu, listed in the See also section.
If there are mountains in China, other than the five and four mentioned in the lead, that are specifically designated as "sacred mountains" (as opposed to being just mountains with temples on them), perhaps the third section should list all of them. The lead section, and the scope of the article, would have to be adjusted to include those other mountains. If, on the other hand, the term "Sacred Mountains of China" really does refer exclusively to the five Taoist and four Buddhist mountains, these others should be removed. A.
