Obviously, you're the only one that can evaluate your situation; if you 
want to make your application work with rel-tag, you need a conforming 
tag-space. The easiest thing to do would be to set up a redirect that 
takes URLs of the form 
<http://dogear.example.com/html/tag/collaboration> and maps them to 
existing URLs of the form 
<http://dogear.example.com/html?tag=collaboration>. Then link to the 
former when using rel-tag. This should be very simple to set up in most 
web servers and will help you transition to using the new, nicely named 
tagspace. ~D
