There were thoughts to assign default tags (which are neither assigned
nor removed by users), such as resource name. Perhaps they could even
be translatable. However, it is not obvious how it would be better to
implement such functionality.

I think resource distribution with tags assigned is one of the
questions which should be addressed before GIMP 2.8 release. When GIMP
detects new resources, how can it find tags for them (possibly
translated) ? It also would be nice to allow user to drag-and-drop
"resource pack" (*.tar.gz or similar) so that all resources with tags
assigned would get installed.

That is a good idea. It should probably not reread, but "merge" with
loaded tags as user might have made changes both from GUI and manually
in tags.xml.
