I agree on the stubs, but the notability tag remaining to encourage 
article growth? I don't think so: it has a specific meaning and no 
longer applies after my changes - BioPerl has been shown to be 'notable' 
thanks to the references I supplied. Indeed, if the tag remains the 
whole article can be deleted, which hardly encourages growth!

In any case, I left a message for the person who originally added the 
tags, so hopefully he'll remove them.
