I strongly suggest that the tags be text, even for test features,  
rather than numbers. They could be a four character code encoded in a  
32-bit integer, if you like, or better two integers encoding an Apple/ 
Palm style "owner" and "type" code.

At the very least you need to have some way of separating different  
developers, otherwise how would you EVER test something in public, or  
test two features in the same client?
