We shouldn't change the tag names IMO. They don't need to be intuitive at all. In my opinion tags are basically a john.pot or *2john thing. They should never be required in input files unless used IRL (eg. $1$) or for non-hashes produced by *2john. Other than those, tags should "always" be used in the pot file and "never" in input files. There are exceptions though, eg. prepared files for contest participants. magnum
