Well, those tags would be public, so *anyone* can decide whether or not
downstream can see the tagged images. 

Semantically and technically there's very little difference between our
current proposed implementation and that of intermediate parties.
The consequences are both obvious and chilling.

We might be just a little too close to the edge on this one. We
need some other options. :)

Fortunately, people like Erik Moeller have been considering other
implementations, where no central categories or lists are used.

Those seem MUCH more sane, and are probably the way forward here. :-)
