I will try to make it better.

Would all "tag commands" need that info? Although there are quite few
of them now, more could be added, and I hate redundant documentation.

Fair enough.

I will fix it.

Sorry, I really tried to understand what you mean above, but it seems
I am the sleepy one right now. Could you maybe suggest a change of the
manual (which, btw, is not done yet).

Thanks, that might be a bug. I will see if I can recreate it.
