Make "blonde hair'" an implication for "yellow hair", not an alias

The bulk update request #8680 has been rejected.

remove alias yellow_hair -> blonde_hair
create implication yellow_hair -> blonde_hair

Although in many cases "yellow hair" IS blonde, there are also many cases in which "blonde" wouldn't be an accurate description for the hair color.

For example:

Yellow Hair: post #5072720 | post #4529295 | post #4885790

Blonde Hair: post #5073868 | post #5073868

I'm talking more about neon yellow, but there may be other examples in which blonde isn't a very accurate description. An implication may be better in case someone forgets the word "blonde" or something.

(I apologize if I worded things poorly or mixed up the order of the tags)

Of the examples given for yellow, 5072720 is sandy blonde streaks and 4529295 is green (with a single tuft of gold, which is honestly more light brown than either blonde or yellow). I get what you're getting at with 4885790 but this colour is so engrained into what counts as blonde on this site that it would need masses of retagging (and masses of arguments) to give any split, only to make a split along the lines of maroon or chocolate brown, which have been nuked in the past.

Also your post would suggest an implication to be in the other direction (blonde to yellow, not yellow to blonde)

Always thought of this as the canonical color based on the anime, where light yellow hair and bright yellow (pronounced) denote the color of blondes.

Perhaps a literal interpretation of hair color would lead to the merging of all pale colors into one (blond, gray, silver or matte silver, others weakly expressed).
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blond

Blond or fair hair, also blonde, is a hair color characterized by low levels of the dark pigment eumelanin. The resultant visible hue depends on various factors, but always has some yellowish color. The color can be from the very pale blond (caused by a patchy, scarce distribution of pigment) to reddish "strawberry" blond or golden-brownish ("sandy") blond colors (the latter with more eumelanin).

Blonde as yellow shaded brown / closer to a dark shade of yellow.
Gold color - the same familiar bright yellow.

For me yellow, gold or whatever yellow falls in the blonde category. More complexity doesn't seem useful, it's already confusing to decide between grey and silver and the brightness of other colors when tagging sometimes, and I prefer simple colors for easier searches.
