You can certainly script this; for a small number of tags a simple
post-new (or post-insert) hook would do the trick. I'm not sure if afew
offers support for something like that, but it might be worth checking

I wonder about the security (broadly speaking) implications of allowing
random people on the internet to specify what tags a message should
have. I guess you could have a whitelist of tags you allow to be set
this way.
