I still have the feeling that tags are the way to go.  Searching etc.
already works with tags.  Their disadvantage seems to be that lines get
cluttered if many tags are used.

Maybe this can be solved with two approaches:
* In agendas, one could have a filter for which tags to show / hide.
  This would be useful otherwise too, as it would allow to hide context
  tags in already defined agendas.


  For example, all my contexts start with "@", so I would set it to be
  "address@hidden" to hide redundant information in my work agendas, or use
  "^@" to remove all context information from a specific agenda.

* For plain view, could we have a soft newline between tags and content
  for an item (like in long-lines-mode)?
  Tags would be shown on a new line (with indentation etc.) but would be
  stored on the same line in files?

  For example, the file content ("\" added by me, should be one long

*** TODO test1      :keyword1:keyword2:keyword3:keyword4:keyword5:  \

  Is shown like this in org-mode:

*** TODO test1
