I don't think that changing a tag that points to a set of files/revision
is the same that changing _indirectly_ what a tag refers to by commiting
changes to that tag.

Yes, i know, i've read your book ;). They're the same... but that's
not an excuse to explain the possibility to commit to a tag without
a hook to prevent it.

Anyway, i'm not asking to remove the current system for tags, but
just asking about adding "mnemonic" names for revisions.
