This is a very interesting idea, but I can see a few problems with it.

First of all, it assumes that everything in your working copy is ready to
be promoted. This is often not the case, and will almost certainly result
in developers getting very confused about files "mysteriously" getting tagged.

Secondly, I don't think it would play well with other developers changes.
You would essentially be saying that all files in your working copy are
ready to be promoted, including those being worked on by somebody else.
They might not be too happy about that.
