​Hi Josh,

So regardless of the detail that was agreed upon when we proposed the tag
idea, I personally find your interpretation to make a lot of sense.  I
think it would be a great direction to go with the tags (and personally I
prefer the faces/graphic version).

I think the trick will still be figuring out what tags are defined/used.  I
don't think we should have just "any tag" added/used, but of course anybody
from the community should be able to submit/propose a tag.​

I personally (both as a community member and TC member) would love to see
more of this moving out to the community as a whole rather than being
something defined and set up within the TC.

Note that one thing the TC has been trying to focus on here is subjective
measurement of the tags that are created, what you're suggesting is a bit
different from that, but personally I like it and think that in a number of
cases it could be very valuable.
