IIUC, the point of doing this (in RCS or CVS) is to adjust the revision names of all subsequent commits as well. That's much closer to switching the branch.

A tag, in Git, just adds an extra (probably better-readable) name to a particular commit, and that's it.

   git commit ...
   git tag REVISION
   git push

Note: you need to add '--tags' to 'git push' to make it push tags.
