I've been shying away from this because it introduces a whole new set of 
issues that I don't think the community of folksonomy commentators have 
really addressed yet. (grin). In a wiki style I can quite imagine a 
group of people editing the node terms but to make that really work, you 
need to keep a history so changes can be undone. If you let anyone tag a 
node, then I think you get into areas where some people like "Author" 
count for more than other "commentators". There again maybe there's no 
problem here. Get the data-model right and the solution may just fall
