Anton and I have discussed this off line and he's added some examples 
on how to use port tags.

In short, as I understand them, the feature is an iterative key word 

You start with a list of ports and all the keywords (tags) for those 
ports. You pick a keyword, and the list of ports reduces to ports 
with just that keyword.  Then you repeat the process with an ever-
decreasing number of ports and keywords, until you have a list of 
ports that is reasonble to read through.
