Bob pointed me at
for further info, and it looks like it isn't this simple. The only way they
allow you to state what the tag actually _is_ (e.g. "pub",
to have it as the final "component" of the URL that you link to. Having it
as a query parameter is no use. Having it as an additional attribute of the
<a> element is no use. Having it as some non-final component of the URL in
order to be compatible with some other scheme that also wants to have its
data as the final component of the URL is no use.
So basically - we can't do this as it stands, and even if we did decide to
rewrite all our URLs to fit in with it, we'd be locking ourselves into a
particular URL scheme which may well be incompatible with the next cool
thing to come along.
It feels rather like something that hasn't been properly thought out yet,
