Well I can't see how it would work efficiently at least (in terms of
number of keystrokes).

To me this all looks like adding a lot of complexity for too little
gain... And if your rectangular regions are going to have tags, how
would you handle the important corner case of multiple regions (say 1
and 2) appearing on the same screen, when a client is at the same time
tagged as 1+2?
