Maybe a safer solution would be to use an overlay for displaying tags.

This way you don't need to worry that changes in the tag display will
be seen as a diff.  But maybe there are already too many overlays on 
an Org page...

I tried it.  Just replace defcustom by setq, because the defcustom
definition is wrong here.

It works very well for small files, but the hooks are slowing down Emacs
display for big files (i.e. the 400k Org file in which I spend my daily
life.)  Perhaps using overlays would also fix this...

Definitely worth a new "Org hacks" entry!
