In my very humble opinion, **who** tagged a resource with ctag T at time t
could also be a very useful information to store. I'm expecting that in the
near future we will have rich user profiles, based on sets of semantic tags
(semantic tagclouds, if you prefer). Communities of interest, not just
individual people, could also be defined in terms of such semantic cIouds. I
think lots of interesting computations could be done over that kind of
information: personalised reading recommendations obviously, but also
relativisation of the popularity of a tagset (and I agree the timestamp is
useful for that) to a particular community of users.

For this sort of thing, don't we need a "taggedBy" property?
