Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It seems ET is slowly growing up to a size where this would be useful, indeed. Being away for a week means taking quite some time to catch up on what has been written in the meantime. It would be useful to have a rather limited list of tags (to avoid tags explosion) and to allow adding tags to existing stories/comments thread (there is a lot of content in the comments !)

In Theory, keywords solve that problem allowing information to be automatically found and retrieved no matter where it resides in the knowledge structure.

In Practice, not so much -- as evidenced by user frustration with Google, et.al.

I agree, that tags, if introduced, should be very limited and be built around a pre agreed set of words.

Additions ought to only happen on an administrative level, to avoid traps -> tags that refer to the same or similar things (Demokrat, Demokrats, Demokratic, demokrat, democrat......)
