My preference too. Tags should be immutable.

I see now that my phrase "the tag commit e-mail shows the changes
made." could be taken to mean that the tag is editted.

However that is not the case.

The tag is created from the workspace + changes; the e-mail shows the
changes from the initial workspace checkout.

So instead of seeing the changes as commits to trunk, followed by a
simple SVN copy which creates the tag, the copy and changes appear in
the tag creation e-mail itself.
