I agree with Reinhart - and have tried selling debtags to Andreas before (but without backing it with code, so my argument was weak!).
Debtags need not be double work:If we express "Multimedia" through facets in debtags, and tell Andreas the debtags commands to extract each of the "flavors" in our "Blend", then I am sure he will integrate debtags support for generation of those nice webpages - for the benefit of *all* Blends.
