Yes unfortunately the tag system still appears in an infancy stage with absolutely zero support in the Menu Item Article Listing section for Tag Blog or Tag List in the same way we can for categories.

Whats more...These Tags are really only useful if they have a strict hierarchy already set for the Author to stick to and it appears that if the Author adds a tag that is needed there is no way to set it's hierarchy among the other tags without going into the component.

tags should also be inherited from category when saved to that category with an option to add other tags when they are shared elsewhere they might also apply.

Nested Categories helped deprecate the Joomla use of Sections...
But we have a bit of a way to go before Tags can replace Categories.
I'm sure the day will come and Tags do seem like the best way to ASSIGN multiple categories to content and perhaps that's the way to go.

Bu the Tag system and Display support for them in Menus is not there yet.
