Is there a reason not to?

Sorry to drag it out then, but coming from CVS where tagging
is the only way to represent a known state and you expect the
repository head to always be changing it just seems odd to
even think about what the rest of the repository has done
when you tag what you currently have. Am I missing a big
advantage of subversion by mostly ignoring the repository
revisions since CVS didn't have them?
