There's an important difference.  If .arch-inventory merely _defaults_
to a names tag in tagline method, you still _can_ tag it properly and
have tree-deltas work.  But if .arch-inventory _always_ has a names
tag, no matter what you do, then you can not get it to work properly
with tree-deltas.

Taking out the mandatory-names-tag for .arch-inventory just means it
works like any ordinary source file.

Ah, yes.  I suspected I was stupidly forgetting something.  But that
should be the fix then:  the untagged-source directive should not
apply to control files.   (.arch-inventory is the first control file
where that will make a difference, but it's a general principle.)
