I guess it depends. Tags are ok if the layout is separate from the
content (and I don't mean HTML-CSS-JS separation here), but I
wouldn't like making tags every time a new content page is added
or another one modified. E.g. for historical reasons we don't have
our content in a database separated from the web templates etc.,
but that has some advantages of its own as well.

Freedom quote:

     It's time we asked ourselves if we still know the freedoms
     intended for us by the Founding Fathers.
     James Madison said, 'We base all our experiments
     on the capacity of mankind for self-government.'
     This idea that government was beholden to the people,
     that it had no other source of power,
     is still the newest, most unique idea
     in all the long history of man's relation to man.
