I immediately thought of Akira Shirakawa's proposition to move a
majority of paint tool options into the concept of brushes. IMO doing
that and using the already existing tagging for brushes would simplify
the user interface and also the user experience. (like I've mentioned
before in reply to Akira's topic, We have an example of how to make
this work very well in MyPaint; the way MyPaint treats brushes really
'fits my brain' IMO and makes painting processes simple to think
about, uncomplicated, and quickly done.)
IMO tagging is sort of a patch over the real problem: part of the
qualities influencing a brush are in the brush itself, with others in
the tool options. Maybe we need tagging, but for the current
situation, tagging would make the separation less ugly, while leaving
the disjunction of 'brush' meaning in place.
