i think things are fine as they are inside of SVN, as far as tagging goes.
cheap copies are great and svn lets you use them to tag and branch anyway you
want to. great.

im working on an auto-tag script, however, and i suspect others have similar
type scripts in use.

what for? i never type in the URL unless im working directly in the repo,
which i only do for importing and tagging (the later of which i do with my
svntag script, as mentioned before)

usually your tags will be ordered correctly because versions are almost always
numbered. if not, then a better, more flexable solution is locking the tag
directories and ordering lists by date, so ask for those features, instead.
