I don't see how this is beneficial. As others have said, it just
encourages tagging for the *current implementation of* the renderer,
as opposed to tagging with a long-term view.
I strongly think taggers should not be influenced by the current
implementation of a handful of renderers. This yes/no information may
be beneficial, however, to those wanting to improve renderer style
files, i.e. to see which features they have yet to consider rendering.
