Sorry, one more point of clarification on this -- what I'm talking about 
here is creating a common okfn.org/annotator *namespace* for the tags. 
The tags themselves would still be owned by the users and subject to 
fluidinfo's permissions model. (For now, the tags are owned by the 
FLUIDINFO_USERNAME specified and are readable by everyone).
