I hope that the change to the tag names could be done in such a way that the tag names do not become less descriptive. Right now it is nice to be able to read a tag name, and often know what it means, without having to look at the long text for the tag. I hope that can remain true. For example, I would request obsolete-national-encoding@debian/copyright rather than national-encoding@debian/copyright. -- Sean Whitton
