I would not expect the hook script to fill in the -r for me, but instead
just prevent any user creating a tag that used the external definition
without the -r switch. This then just prevents the tag from referencing
a moving target. Is it possible to create such a hook script and does
one already exist?

I looked at this solution also but as most changes occur to shared code
from within another project, there is a laborious task of checking out
the shared code, and creating a new tag for it.
I would be interested in having a look at the hook script you created to
prevent changes to tag directories as I was going to create a hook that
does the same thing; if you don't mind.
