For such purposes using custom Subversion properties can be a good
solution. Properties won't be confused with normal tags or label
and can also use their own "namespaces". And they can not only be
used as a flag but they also can contain some more verbose information.

Unfortunately Subversion itself currently doesn't support queries
based on user defined propertiert, like

svn export --with-property=my:prop1 --without-property=my:prop2

But such things can be done very easily with some shellscripts.
