The intent for this was to make it usable in search engines like [muclumbus].
I think those are orthogonal features, and I wouldn’t show the (MUC
controlled) tags in client UIs beside search, to be honest.
Tags were one of the first features informally requested against muclumbus
after I launched it, and it was something I’d like to have had right from the
Fulltext search in description and name and JID is nice and all, but you (as a
user) need to know what keywords to search for (plus designing a working,
usable fuzzy fulltext search is not trivial; PRs welcome). Tags would allow me
(muclumbus hat on) to provide more useful search suggestions.
