Commons has tags right now: they're called categories. Or is there a distinction you're making? :-) Tim and I discussed this a few weeks ago and I was mostly on your side, but when he asked what would be different, I had difficulty articulating a great response. It seems to really come down to a social problem on Commons. Some Commoners seem to have very specific views of what categories should be for and how they should be constructed and named. But this isn't a technical problem, per se. Poor labeling or other interface design problems (or outright limitations) in MediaWiki may contribute to this problem, but is there a larger technical issue here? It seems to primarily be a social issue, from what I've seen, not a technical issue. I'd be interested in your thoughts on this. There are specific features we'd like to have (such as built-in intersections), but is there a fundamental difference between categories and tags? Or perhaps put another way: what are we waiting for, exactly?
