I also use both:
* Too many clients in the current tag => unselect a currently unused tag.
* Want to work with a given set of clients from different categorized tags
(one browser client from „www“-tag, one terminal emulator from „dev“-tag, …)
=> enable a generic tag in all of these clients to use this tag as a temporary
workspace. Since I don't need this too often, I stick with tags-as-tags.
