When I look at it, explicit tagging seems to be just an after-thought,
where arch should actually always use automatic tags internally. This
would remove the difference between all the tagging methods. If arch finds
an id in the file (however it's generated), it can use this as hint to
automatically update the internal tag, otherwise this has to be done
