Note, that my algorithm works only if it was trained with input data
(i.e. manually tagged database). So the AI-tagged database will be
always based on a manually tagged one. Enrico did suggest something
similar to your proposal, by creating a tag-patch with the AI-tagger.
The patch must be reviewed manually.
I think forking a new database is not worth the effort. First the AI (at
least my approach) has no sufficient precision. Additionally I don't
see, that anyone would be willing to edit another tag database to
increase the precision.
Sorry, but I don't see any real benefit with your approach. 

Greetings Ben
