Because stories are a cross-project concept and tags are applied to
the story, it's possible for a story with tasks for both
openstack/nova and openstack/cinder projects to represent a bug for
one and a new feature for the other. If they're tagged nova-bug and
cinder-feature then that would allow them to match the queries those
teams have defined for their worklists, boards, et cetera. It's of
course possible to just hand-wave that these intersections are rare
enough to ignore and go ahead and use generic story tags, but the
recommendation is there to allow teams to avoid disagreements in
such cases.
