I think it is minimally acceptable to not group statements and just tag
individual statements (just to get this out the door), but I think
Mike's point goes to a real issue: we need to tag arbitrary content,
i.e., a subtree, an ontology. The issue won't go away. This gets into
"partitioning" and whatever granularity we end up with.
