Why not also allow tagging on within-page links (i.e. after "#" as well
as after "/")? Then, if I have a page with sub-sections, each of those
could be a tag, according to their ID:

        <ul class="navbar">
        <li><a href="#whisky" rel="tag">Whisky</a></li>
        <li><a href="#wine" rel="tag">Wine</a></li>


        <h2 id="whisky">"Whisky</h2>

        <h2 id="wine">"Wine</h2>

the only issue I can see would be backwards capacity if the link was to
a sub-section of a second (or external) page :

        <a href="http://www.example.com/apage.htm#beer"

which existing parsers might interpret as a tag of:
