The only thing that won't work is using the git repository as a package
repository without specifying the fragment (i.e., the "default set"
functionality). You can still tag using whatever scheme you deem sensible
and specify the tag(s) explicitly in the fragment.

And, as I mentioned in my previous email, there are plans to support
custom default set/tagging schemes.
