No attempt is being made to do so.  Zack's assertion was that taglines
are not useful for `plain text files.'  This may nor may not be true,
but regardless, it's not a reason to avoid taglines where they _are_
useful.  Text files can use explicit tagging just as happily whether or
not source files do too.

If you want to have a ironclad `all files must use the same id-tagging
style,' that's your choice, but I see no great justification for it (in
the emacs sources, for instance, there are only a few files that could
reasonably be called `plain text'; I chose to use explicit for those
files, but certainly am not going to let that dictate what the rest of
the sources uses).
