Scope of X-Men tag and its usage? Is it really suitable for being a franchise tag?

I don't see any reason why we can't go with x-men-cinematic-universe. It parallels very nicely with the marvel-cinematic-universe, and until Fox decides to name it officially, we have no better option....

Should there be an "Identify-this-documentary" tag?

No, there shouldn't. Documentary is less of a medium than rather a genre or style. Documentaries can very well be either movies or TV-shows, which are the media that we separate ID questions into. So ...
