Fair enough. It really needs nice URLs as Technorati uses the last 
directory in a URL to extract the tag.

I think it's important that there are feedback mechanisms that encourage 
convergence on tags. And the nutricious interface to del.icio.us (now 
available as a beta bookmarklet on del.icio.us) makes del.icio.us way 
more usable. I really want a mechanism to allow this to be built in 
although I'll concede that it probably shouldn't be in core because it's 
a prime area for experiments.
