Yeah, this has always been something I've wanted (I was mostly thinking of
cases where the user _wants_ to change an explicit id to a tagline or
vice-versa, but it's always annoying to see tagline correction changesets
being so large, and prone to cause conflicts).

What I want to see is a tagging method that allows you to retain your previous ID.

For example, I have a file with explicit tagging called README.

It has this ID:

If I want to change the ID to tagline-2, I'd put a line like this in the file:

arch-tag2: x_Aaron_Bentley_<address@hidden>_Thu_Jan_15_12:35:28_2004_25200.0

So you get a changeset where the .id is deleted, and README is modified. but if someone works on the old version, you can still merge those changes.

Of course, tagging-method changes are also deal-killers...
