I agree that 1.4.6-eol is not a good name since it implies a 1.4.6
release that never happened.

I don't agree with the fact that tags are only used in SCM to denote a
release. I think that's the most common usage, but I've always viewed
a tag as any significant point on a branch that signifies not to
expect further changes. The places where those exist in most projects
is for releases and branches that have been EOLed.
