This seems to exclude scientific research that doesn't directly pertain to technology. If I for instance am interested in the scientific worldview a pre flight society on the moon of a gas giant might have, tagging as technological-development would not be appropriate, but neither would science-based.
What are your thoughts on this?
As an example of a question that could use this tag, I present you with What if time travel had to take into account spatial distance? Which in part asks, what kind of experiments scientists might perform to study time travel with certain restraints. This doesn't quite fit under the technological-development umbrella, but would certainly benefit from a tag that indicates a focus on in-universe scientists.
