Tim is suggesting we limit the range of addr-spec allowed in 'tag' URIs
so that they are legible.

You are suggesting it's no problem for one speaker group to be able
to tag things with addr-spec values that plainly say "this is mine" and
others to be limited to marking things with inscrutable Romanji machine
codes.

For the latter groups, this scheme would offer no advantages over
a hash such as provided in the opaquelocktoken scheme.  For the
elect, it gives tags that are friendly names, too.

Think about it.
