We had one suggestion by a user that goes slightly in this direction: On
the main map you would have a certain area ("clipboard").
You could copy or drag objects onto this area, the important idea is,
that it stays fixed regardless how you scroll or zoom the map.
In combination with Ctrl-C, Ctrl-Shift-V (paste tags) you would have
easy access to often used tags and geometries. Maybe there would be a
way to mark objects in the clipboard as "auto apply", i.e. all it's tags
are "sticky tags".
