Thumbnails are a different request, bug 20972 .

please be careful, not everything that has been drafted in mock ups has been
discussed with the technical guys.

I don't know how that tag system currently works, i.e. I don't know if and how
misspellings could be avoided. For me the idea sounds

a) like a suggestion for a ccHost improvement as I think there is no API access
for file insertion on behalf of users or tagging of new files OR
b) something that can be realized relatively easily independently from ccHost
but only half-automatic, i.e. you prepare a batch of files and later some
volunteers insert them one-by-one.
