Well, the existing functions like is_category and such don't do that.
So they would have the same problem.

However, the existing functions in 2.5 also allow you to input arrays
of things, so I figured that was worth adding as well. If you give
this one an array of tags, has_tag will return true if any of them

Note that if you added the third parameter of "true" to the "in_array"
functions below, then the strict checking mode would prevent the issue
you're concerned about with it mixing up id's and slugs.

 * has_tag() - Check if the current post has the given tag
 * @package WordPress
 * @subpackage Taxonomy
 * @since 2.5.1
 * @uses wp_get_object_terms() Gets the tags.
 * @param string|int|array $tag Optional. The tag name/id/slug or
array of them to check for
 * @return bool True if the current post has the given tag, or any
tag, if no tag specified
function has_tag($tag = '') {
	global $post;
	$taxonomy = "post_tag";

	if ( !in_the_loop() ) return false; // in-the-loop function

	$post_id = (int) $post->ID;

	$terms = get_object_term_cache($post_id, $taxonomy);
	if (empty($terms))
	       	$terms = wp_get_object_terms($post_id, $taxonomy);

	if (empty($tag)) return (!empty($terms));
	$tag = (array) $tag;
	foreach($terms as $term) {
		if ( in_array( $term->term_id, $tag ) )
			return true;
		elseif ( in_array( $term->name, $tag ) )
			return true;
		elseif ( in_array( $term->slug, $tag ) )
			return true;		

	return false;
