That's pretty much what I do, too.  It's manageable for core, but 
modules (at least in 4.7) make it much more complicated.  Perhaps it's 
worse for me, since I'm new at Drupal, and keep trying a variety of 
modules.  Every time I add a new module, I have to do another import, 
and figure out a new tag.  Then doing merges gets ugly.

The 5.0 module version scheme should help this - at least making it 
easier to map my Subversion tags to the CVS versions.
