You are talking past each other.  You want to organize tags into a
directory of tags, Dmitry is talking about placing tags all into a
single branch.  Which makes very little sense.  But it's not obvious to
casual users of gits that you can have tags in a directory structure
that has nothing to do with either the work directory or the commit
