To me, yes.

You can manually edit a mail and insert the X-Tag header.

You can write a function that does it for you quickly.  This is
especially useful if you only use three or four tags.

You can also set such a header via procmail.
See for example this rule:

| :0 fwh
| * B ?? (David Carlton)
| | formail -I "X-found-keyword: David"

Then use `gnus-summary-limit-to-headers' to limit the summary to article
with your X-Tag header matching the right keyword.
