It seems to be the only tagging method that doesn't actually require
anything of the user. When you use 'names', you don't have to modify the
files, everything is just taken care of as best as tla can figure out
how to take care of it. Of course it's not the best behavior possible,
but it's the least intrusive.

I don't think 'names' should be used once people have a good enough
understanding to use something else. But when they're just starting out
with tla, 'names' makes it easy for them to make progress without
hitting brick walls.

Be well,
