You are assuming a very simple situation, that is why. My application
releases, as an example, invariably involve dozens of "projects", so my
tag structure might look like this:

/tags
   /releaseXYZ
       /project1
       /project2
       /project3
       /project4
       /project5
       /project6
       /project7
 

And it could very well be:

/tags
   /releaseXYZ
       /docs
          /project1
          /project2
       /eclipse
          /project3
          /project4
       /web
          /project5
          /project6
       /win32
         /project7

Unless I was forced to maintain this structure everywhere, at every point
in time, I think it could be difficult for Subversion to discern which
folder to go use.
