But npm tarballs does not always contains tests. We should run tests to be able to update its dependencies (See https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=840213). So npm dist tarballs should be used only when tags are missing in the repo and not the default. Usually the upstream authors are very responsive to requests for updating tags page.
