Let's put it this way:

- tags are an official part on BTS and are defined by BTS admin
(usertags are a different categorization, out of this problem);
- tags don't change that ofter (except for "release" specific tags,
that are private for rel team to set, and almost never done at submit
time), so we can update the list when changes are applied and wait for
a new upload to happen without too much worry and hurry;
- since we should guarantee that reportbug works even offline, we
cannot download the list all the times, so having a little replication
of data (with a script to check for update) seems to reduce the impact
of the problem.

Hope this clarify the situation, but your suggestions are always welcome :)
