There're, from my *very personal* point of view, a few things. It pollute
my sources (if every tool that I use to manipulate my files pretend to add
something it'll get nasty). It is not transparent (why should I care about
adding a tag-line: inside my files, the tool should be able to do the
right thing w/out hooking on my data). It is not simmetric from an
implementation point of view (how do you tag-line: binary files ?).
