I'm very interested in this sort of thing also. I suppose it's off topic
for this thread though. Anyway, briefly, my conclusion is the same as
yours. All filetypes can be meta tagged the same way technically. then
you need a common storage(I've been experimenting with rdf indexing on
top of xattrs) and indeed Emacs is ideal for large scale tagging.
