The only way I can see this working then is to "move" the tag once a vote
passes. Whether this involves duplicating the tag, or creating a new one
that points to the same thing, I don't know. Other people with more Git-fu
can step in here. But we need a way of blessing tags that works with
downstream repositories, and that separates them out from defunct tags that
never made the cut.
