Today I edited the tag on this question from real-analysis to probability. At present I have low to mid 400 reputation points. According to the privileges sheet I should not be able to do that until I have 500 points. I used an edit link at the bottom of the question. Perhaps this is a bug; perhaps a feature.

This is not a bug. As soon as you'll reach 500 reputation points, you will be able to edit tags autonomously, that is: without approval from a user with higher reputation. Full editing privileges will be granted from 2000 reputation points on.

In this specific instance, you suggested an edit to change the tag from to which was then approved by another user.

There's nothing wrong with that, as far as I can tell.
