i understand your concerns, anyhow svn is much more friendly than cvs 
WRT tagging and branching and you have several alternatives to keep 
branch-creep under control, for example with svn you can:
 * delete old/stale tags/branches (still keeping the whoole history)
 * group developer tags/branches under some special folder out of the 
main 'branches' namespace

i'm not advocating branch-creep, but at least with svn you have a number 
of mitigating strategies not available to cvs.
