I don't see the need to complicate the bar. If one wants to
differentiate tag labels from userdefined labels, you can use a
prefix, no need to create paths. Use 'atag_' prefix for tags,
and check on click, if it begins with 'atag_' and the select the
associated view, otherwise ignore or do something else.
