a big and heavy +1 for me.  I'm really concerned about tags and db,  
now that I've understood what didn't sound to me.

if 2.2 gets out with this db structure, it will be official; think  
about the number of plugins and themes that will work on it,  and  
count how many headaches will face wp-core team about backward  
compatibility... Taking time and split tables will allow some authors  
to write their plugins and be ready for 2.2

And the beautifulness of open source is even to have a real  
explaination about delays :-)
