Erm... why do think tags for a blog post would be rapidly changing?
They would be set by the owner of a post and that's it.  The
likelihood of a tag changing in this scenario is no greater than the
post being edited.  It's meta info, but clearly part of the post.  You
won't have many people try to update the same post, or at least the
contention on that is very low.
