I'm not sure what you mean by "won't be cool." It doesn't break any
functionality as far as I can tell, and successfully adds
functionality for systems that support it (e.g. Foxylicious). People
are already using parent.child syntax for tags  , and it seems
to be working just fine.

You could, but that doesn't give leave any indication that
httpsubscription is meant as a subset of software. Not particularly
important in this case, but "politics.green" is quite different from
"construction.green" or "color.green".
