       Could we do something similar to the mail-header custom of prepending
       "X-" to non-blessed headers?  Let the namespace do the work?

       If we use a namespace convention like the above, it might be easier to
       write a tool which grubs around in existing logs to find added tags.
       Any lines found by this tool could be sanitized (IP addresses removed,
       etc) and emailed to this list, or a similar list for classification
