You said you wanted to apply multiple tags to a given email message.
So you would bookmark a message, and apply whatever tags you wanted
to the bookmark.  The bookmark gives you a way to tag the message.

Anything you can bookmark you can tag (indirectly), by tagging the

In addition to grouping by common tag (e.g., all `family' messages),
you can group bookmarks in multiple other ways (including bookmarking
a group of bookmarks!).  Tags and other ways of grouping let you
organize things - any kind of things that you can bookmark.  And you
can create new bookmark types for things that you cannot bookmark
out of the box.
