Filesystem using tags, not folders?

Just a wild thought here ...

After noticing how much simpler it is using tags, for instance
with my bookmarks at -- compared to hours of
frustration trying find the right combination of folders and
sub folders in my Firefox' bookmarks.html, I was wondering
if the same approach could be used to arrange the UNIX filesystem
hierarchy, from the root and up. This is just a radical thought,
not yet an idea even -- but if somebody would be willing to think
with me -- maybe we could make a big change.

All the best,
