All the other tags that fall under the Amazon Web Services umbrella follow the convention of starting with 'amazon-', this appears to be the only remaining exception.

As per Amazon's description:

Amazon Route 53 is a highly available and scalable Domain Name System (DNS) web service.

should be renamed to

So I've renamed to and defined a synonym.
