Tags, commas, and the new sorter

No. Tags aren’t propagated to children due to the tighter filesystem integration we have in DT3, especially regarding indexed files. Imagine you had a group with 1000 items in it. Adding a tag would fire off a surge of filesystem activity as it tagged all those files in the Finder. This would cause Spotlight to kick into high gear as well. And if you suddenly realized, “Wait! I don’t want that tag!”, removing the tag would cause the same kind of activity.
