There is a tag ×154, without tag wiki or excerpt. It seems to be used mainly for things like maximum likelihood, which has its own tag, further optimization used in estimation is covered by the tag ×1263. Maybe we should declare [parameter-optimization] as a synonym of [optimization]? Otherwise it needs a wiki.

This seems really obvious. I have made [parameter-optimization] a synonym of [optimization], and I merged them.
