And it is obvious to me, if you want to do add/delete/move-tag
explicitly by hand as a feature (not as an annoyance), then taglines
only would provide disavantages.

If taglines would still have a value over explicit, it would simply mean
that the explicit method isn't implemented as powerful as it should be,
and that the gap would need to be filled.
