My view is that setting one or more revision properties *during
a commit* is not a different mechanism, merely an unfortunate
oversight in the current implementation of the standard client.
A solution simplies combines the separate actions of commiting
(remembering the new revision number) and setting the properties.
This additional functionality is not a different "tagging"

Different tagging mechanisms are a wholly different discussion.
