Conceptually, tags and branches are the same for CVS and SVN, though in
SVN implementation, tags=branches, ie, you can do the same things with
tagged code or branched code. For example, you can CO tagged code and
mege to it in SVN, but you can't do this in CVS.
So yes there's no reason why you can't tag a whole project, same way as
you do in CVS.

        I take it the recommended tags directories exist dues to the
fact that you don't 'tag' projects in place, like you might have done
in CVS? You do a copy to another directory, i.e., the tags directory.
What about a project with generic library dependencies? Can I create a
'global' (to the repository) tag, where I could CO all the project and
it's subprojects?
