What data structure could be used to represent this data in
application? As I understand, it will be necessary not only to
traverse data, but also to update it at runtime (not files, but
internal data structures, of course). Wouldn't it be nice to use
Sqllite for this instead?

They could be discarded after some period, say 90 days. Tags won't
make sense forever (because you'll forget why you added them), so
there is no point to keep them forever.
