You've come to the right place. At debian-devel we are always
willing to argue over the meanings of words.
First notice that a facet is something that an object has, whereas
a namespace is something that a name of an object occupies.
Thus, your two terms aren't really alternatives to each other,
but complements of each other. One is a material-mode term, the
other a formal-mode term.
I suggest you say that the tags belong to tagspaces; that each
tagspace corresponds to a particular facet of packages; and that
each tag signifies a particular property that packages have.
