Indeed, this was a very important step for me too.
Akonadi was slow, showing the mail list was unusable.
Upon updating to 4.8.1 I deleted all akonadi/pim related configuration and 
haven't had an issue since. I did take care to manually delete only 
akonadi/kontact configuration files, so that the rest of my quite extensive 
customization an locally stored data (such as calendars) stayed intact.
All I had to do then was point akonadi to the data folders, and everything 

Back to the original question (adressbook spawning tags) : How are your 
contacts stored? Which ressource do you use? Have you tried backing up those 
contacts, deleting the resource and creating a new one? Is the akonadi nepomuk 
feeder active? Which version of KDE does precise come with?

If you're not using nepomuk for other things, you can start from scratch (new 
user/delete nepomuk configuration), I guarantee that will get rid of the tags. 
You will then have to recreate the akonadi nepomuk feeder though.
