Was searching for an artist (example: artist:burgerkiss) but found only 5 images iwth the non-artist: tag burgerkiss. I went and removed those since it should be the artist tag, but is there any reason to not alias burgerkiss -> artist:burgerkiss ?

Not a particularly strong reason, no, just it’s convention here to use “artist:” and instances where it’s not used are generally corrected before anyone that can set aliases notices.
If there’s an artist tag where it’s a repeated issue (I guess from using postybirb or just copy-pasting tags from e621?) I guess it makes sense.
