This issue has a long history... seems to me tagging awaits rendering, and
rendering awaits tagging. In such cases, you need a commitment from both
sides, with enough support to fuel trust. Then things can get rolling.

I am pretty sure about the tagging side - the problem is recognized, there
are ideas, and I think a solution can be found whether over left or over
right. I am not sure about the rendering side. There's no use in tagging a
lot then throw it at the renderers and hearing: nice try, can't be done,
or: fine, we'll see if someone picks it up next century. Ok, exaggerated,
but wouldn't it be better to engage earlier and get a commitment and lay
out a road map?
