You can always add the property retrospectively to any existing tags
(unless you have a hook which prevents it). The only point about adding
the property to trunk is that it gets copied automatically to any new
tags created from trunk.

There are no general purpose "Global" properties in subversion. The
equivalent to a global ignore would be to add a (comma-separated) list
of tag names to the TSVN client settings, as has already been proposed.
But that would be a client setting used on all repositories, not a
repository setting used by all clients.

Sometimes you want changes to externals to be committed. But maybe the
tsvn:commitwarning (or whatever) should cover externals too, if the
external URL contains '/tags/' or whatever is in that property.
