I guessed that.
Hey, The ASF repository is not *my* usage model, just a convienient example of an extreme case. However, this model does exist, is acknowledged as a possible solution and any label solution being discussed IMHO *must not* introduce any problems for those usage models.

I know, I do have those projects as well (we're doing some quite simple websites sometimes and they don't need a complicated development workflow). However, tagging from the trunk works nicely for those once you get used to it (this is at least my experience). You're not likely to get a large number of revisions for those projects either, so you could get away with revision properties or placing a "stable_revisions.csv" somewhere in the root folder. Write a wrapper that handles the file or properties and you're done.
I hope you can see as clear as I do that people are trying to evolve your "PML" into a full blown secondary tagging mechanism. What I like about svn is that there is a simple way of doing things, creating a tag. It's really dead simple, I make a copy, just as I used to do back when noone was talking about revision control: place a backup somewhere. Creating a secondary tagging mechanism makes the whole thing go from sleek and efficient to bloated and overburdened. I agree that some workflows can be streamlined and that some paradigms are sometimes awkward for small scale projects but I really prefer it over ambigious behaviour and tons of options, multiple ways of doing things.
I understand that your intention is to make things better and simpler, but often the worst things stem from purely good intentions. I'd rather prefer to map the simpler workflows we both want to the "regular" workflows and hide that fact from the user. The tortoiseSVN "tag" command is just this example. It does offer a nice interface to tagging and in the background creates a copy.
