^^ that - I as well would expect all tags as well.

Having a stampede of tags happens now and then in all kind of repo's and
people are used to deal with it.
Missing them for no reason that appears trivial ("normal" clone fetches
them as you outlined) hurts much more.
And finally since the tags are nicely name-spaced and follow rules they can
easily be filtered out.
