With respect, I don't see the point in your proposal. Mail (not just 
email, but mail more generally) is inherently a push rather than pull 
phenomenon. That is why we send things to addresses. If email were a 
pull technology it just wouldn't work. Have you ever tried to 
schedule a meeting using email? In answer to your query: no, I would 
certainly not put such tags into (most of) my email.
