Interesting, thanks.

Just to clarify though, are you using the grammar tags as unique
identifiers? Isn't this impossible, since multiple nodes use the same
grammar tags (e.g. there are multiple VP nodes)?

Wouldn't you instead store the grammar tag in a separate attribute like:
[:node "2103738"; :tag "VP"; :parentNode "9073"; :children("98732987"
"342323241" ...)]

and then query it like:
[:node ?a; :tag "VP"; :children ?a]
