Actually thinking of the alternative to highlight all single
tags which are currently viewed seems to be a considerable idea
I haven't thought of this yet. (It would correlate with providing some
way you described above, but I know a more simple way, just
define right clicking a tag as 'view `wmiir read /def/ws`+$1'.

The only necessary change would be that my ~ prefix in tag
labels should be removed and the user has to remember which
layer he has selected.

Would this be ok?
