Fixed tagging rules are not needed to lower the learning curve. I have 
the highest regard for someone who sits down and writes a tutorial for 
newcomers. My skepticism comes from seeing too many people whine about 
the lack of fixed tagging rules ("oh so difficult for the poor 
newcomers!") while at the same time *not* writing a tutorial. That makes 
me think they just use the "poor newcomers" argument to achieve 
something else.
