Hmmm, saying that a tag is a branch adds fuel to the confusion. In 
Arch, 'branch' already denotes a subset <archive>/<c>--<b> of The 
Arch Repository.

Maybe thinking of 'tag' as an operation rather than as a thing might 
help clarifying this. To me, 'tla tag <src-revision> 
<dest-version>' means create a new revision in <dest-version> that 
references <src-revision>. The usal term for such a revision is 
"continuation" which I find more precise than just "tag" (and I 
even did not mention inventory tags since they are now called 
'ids' ;).
