Reasons for tags
Tags provide alternate groupings for your content. In the documentation for this theme, there are a number of equally plausible ways I could have grouped the content. The folder names and items I chose for each item could have been grouped in other ways with good reason.
Tags allow you to go beyond the traditional hierarchical classification and provide other groupings. For example, the same item can belong to two different groups. You can also introduce other dimensions not used in your table of contents, such as platform-specific tags or audience-specific tags.
