It's visible in the tag description. Each tag is backed by a precise
definition that explains what the tag means.

Tags as designed are labels, not metrics. We define what "well-packaged"
means, and then apply that label to projects that fit the bill.

If we mix the messaging by making tags be both labels and metrics, then
it will be extra-hard to make a project navigation website to expose both.

That said, the Ops tags WG is pretty much on the same line -- the
discussion we had in Vancouver was that we should define subjectively
what "well-packaged" means, and than apply it objectively. Same for the
other ops tags. So I think we are actually on the same line...
