The point of tag copies is that they are supposed to be snapshots
that are never changed. Also, when you copy from the working
copy, it takes the current state whether the changes have been
committed elsewhere or not so if file "A" is modified before
you make the tag, you will already have it. If you really need
to change the contents of a tag you can delete and recreate it
but this is a versioned operation and someone would be able to
find the old copy by its revision number or timestamp.
