First of all, this is a great idea. I like it.
I'm not 100% clear how other tags are laid out elsewhere, but I think that you
may still want to include subclassifications for 'OpenGL' apps.
I can think of many situations (especially where hardware is suspect) that you
wouldn't want to include any Open GL apps whatsoever.
Now, if there is some other tag elsewhere where you can specify this, then
it's a moot point.
