There is no "default repository structure" or "official" way. There's
no reason from a pure SVN point of view that each branch can't have a
"tags" subdir. Some add-on tools or hook-scripts might make assumptions
about repo layouts, of course.

I personally don't differentiate tags from branches vs. tags from trunk,
except possibly by name. I find the convenience of being able to find
all the tags in one place outweighs other considerations. YMMV.
