Again, in the cases where there is actually a SHA1 conflict between all

Instead, the common case of multiple remotes with duplicated tag names
referring to the same thing _and/or_ multiple remotes with distinct tags

Again, I don't think that's the common case.  I think it's just as likely for
there to be multiple remotes with duplicate tag names that refer to different

Why do you say so?  I'm curious to know what kind of work flow would do
that in practice.

The use case I have in mind is where a project makes use of other projects, for example an application that uses some libraries. The application's repository could contain the full histories of the libraries, each subtree-merged into a different directory.

So maybe that's not so common these days, but the current flat tag namespace makes it pretty much impractical.
