Why has Android not made available the meaning of all the relevant status bar symbols? Why can I not find this complete list? I try to find out and post it, now Android is stopping me from doing this because I cannot find a ""TAG"" ??? What is going on?


It is mostly because status bar icons vary from OEM to OEM. Each one has a slightly modified icon set to go with their overall skin/UI. And then icons will depend a lot on the features incorporated within a device. So, developing a full list of icon sets seems like a tough task. Because you'll eventually miss at least something used on a phone. Other than that, 3rd party apps also show their icons up the status bar. And it's impossible to keep a track of each and every app.
