In some ways our system is like a really, really good tag
implementation. If you look on delicious or flickr and what power users
of tags complain about, and it's generally the same thing: they want to
group them (create hierarchies) and they want to retroactively rename them.
Someone could start off using WP in a tag-like fashion, and then
organize it later should they so choose. Or they could do like
avalonstar.com and have 8 categories with every post only in one forever
and ever amen.
Perhaps a better question would have been: For folks using the WP
"thing" in a tag-like on-the-fly manner, are there things we could do in
the interface or template functions we could provide to make that easier?
