Usually the point of the tag is to be able to find the revision you want
without checking anything else and with svn's 'cheap copy' method it is
a reasonable approach. The only real down side compared to CVS is that
you can't start from a tagged copy and look 'forward' to see what other
revisions have been done since this revision was tagged.
