Let's play it straight: there's no _need_ for moving tags.
Yes, it can be convenient, but you'll shooting yourself in the foot no
matter if it's "how private" you make it.

As I said previously (and was completely ignored ;-), with SVN one can
rely on repository revisions.
And if people don't like that, they can use a series of "pre" tags.
And probably a "pre" branch.

Don't take my word for it: ask the SVN list or cvs or cvsnt or some
"change management" people what they think of moving tags...
