The tags are stored externally in ~/.gimp-2.7/tags.xml

There is currently no way to distribute tags along with resources, but 
we want to add this of course. The default resources have default, 
translatable tags.

Yes, it even can handle when resources are moved around in the 
filesystem. It keeps the md5 sum of resources it has tagged, so if a 
resource does not exist, it will use the md5 sum to locate it again.

I think your mail is perfectly reasonable for a devel list.
