I had in mind tags like "coding" or "fun" or "work" or some separation of
the tasks you do with your computer. I mean, you would rarely need to watch
youtube while hacking, but still may want to have a youtube browser window
open for some reasons. Then you tag it "fun", while your $EDITOR window is
tagged "work". I hope it is clearer now.

Computer resources can be argument. may be not for all but still. And
response time surely for many on the list.

Of course it is a matter of personal attitude how you weight it, but just
to provide one: portability across platforms, paradigms, resources. I
prefer to have my bookmarks in a simple decently formated text file rather
than along with rdf tags I never told I want to see there, or, worse, in a
sql database.
