There is no difference between tags and branches in subversion. To
subversion both are nothing more than copies of a file tree.
How would the copy/create tag/branch dialog know where the copy must be
stored without supplying knowledge about what sort of copy operation the
user wants to perform?

And it all depends on local convention where tags are placed (sometimes
there are project specific tag folders, sometimes there is an hierarchy
below the initial /tags, etc. etc. so a single setting will not help all of
the usecases).
