The robot-exit tag is added to tests automatically when execution is stopped gracefully since RF 2.9 (#2029). When this special tag was added, we decided to reserve the robot- prefix to be used also with other special tags in the future.

We are now adding a possibility to disable dry-run by using a special tag in RF 3.0.2 (#2528), but like robot:no-dry-run better than robot-no-dry-run. We should use the same prefix with all special tags, but we cannot change robot-exit in a minor release. Prefixes should be unified in RF 3.1. This includes updating the documentation in the User Guide regarding to the reserved tags.

When we rename robot-exit, we don't necessarily need to use robot:exit but can use something more explicit like robot:graceful-exit.
