Well, I liked the argument of having a fixed rightmost position
for the title in the upper right corner and the tags left of it.
Now you broke this fixed position, clobber the status bar with
ambiguous additional tag labels on the right and yet it is not
consistent with the in-window title-bars because in the status
the title is left-aligned and the associated tags are to the far
right while in the windows everything is right-aligned.
I don't have another good idea, but I sure don't like this one.

Generally, the contents in the status bar are not well separated
from each other. It's not very obvious which things belong
together and which not, it's just a series of text with alternating
colors. At least there should be some spacing to group the three
blocks: tag selectors / window title and tags / info. Maybe just
center the middle block or give them different color schemes.
