Well, not entirely.  Some hierarchy is necessary, and the tagging
mechanisms I'm familiar with don't really provide that.  A few minutes
trying to get help on any GUI application whether from Microsoft or
GNOME convinces me that documentation is not something that should be
left to non-developer users.  (I don't know about del.icio.us, I stay
as far away from that kind of Web2.0 as I can.)

This is what I had in mind, although like you I don't really know how
the "federating" algorithm should work.
