Is it therefore also a flaw in CVS that a tag can be 'adjusted' to
point to a different set of files?

Tags and branches are the same thing. The only difference is whether
you decide to change them or not. It's true in CVS, and it's true in
Subversion. The difference between the two, however, is that if I
'adjust' a tag in CVS, there's no record of that fact. There is with
Subversion -- in fact, I can easily revert the change.
