Feel free to add any ideas for faster tagging in a new or existing wish entry (dont know if there are already any reports). This may include any form of assigning tags with the keyboard, if it is free writing.

Your main question is why tags can be nested. IMO this is an important feature. The place in the hierarchy is a property of the tag itself. E.g. first level is the country, say Andalucia, child tag of this is the city, say Sevilla, child of this is a place in the city, say the cathedral.

I have not yet used flickr or any other of these web-based tagging platforms. It seems you have a different notion of what tags mean, but thats ok thats the idea behind this, you are free to tag as you like, and you are free not to use nested tags. If there is (apart from fast tag entry) any useful feature missing for your usage of tags which I dont understand from your initial post, you may want to explain it.
