Although it is possible to update a tag, which has some advantages:
checking out the tag will give the latest version of it (much as
checking out a tag updated with the -F flag in CVS will), but you can
also look at the history of the tag--which cvs tag -F doesn't allow you
to do.

That said, many people feel that you shouldn't be able to update tags,
and put pre-commit hooks in place that prevent updating a tag. If
you're used to updating tags, then be prepared for other svn users to
look at you funny when you talk about it--but that's just convention.
