Agreed.  If you look at all of what I said, I was arguing that concerns 
about how many types of things could be rendered should not prevent 
detailed tagging.  It is always possible to go from a complex data set 
to a simplified rendering; going from a simple data set to a complex 
rendering is frequently not possible.
