Interesting thoughts by BillSeitz on why page-names are better than tags.

But then I realized, that the "revisit" gap would still be there, and in between I'd have a lot of gunk in my garden.

Reviewing a piece, adding appropriate wikilinks to integrate it into my shared language, are similar to a Progressive Summarization process.

This also relates (in my head, at least) to why Tags are not nearly as helpful as wikilink/backlinking. (See old WikiWord As Tag.)

Tags, being relatively fixed, are an affordance for convergence (pulling together pages around a given anchor). But wiki/backlinking also supports divergence: I can play with different frames, then keep/reject/leave-fallow over time as I find them varyingly useful.
