I can see one clear case where that would become a problem: mistaggings.
If I set up something so that in 99% of the cases, it'd tag new mail
correctly with say "inbox unread mytag", I could quickly pick the
mistagged ones out and remove the offending tag.
If you do it like above however, the autotag script would come merrily
along and retag them.
