Uhm... I would like to keep subjective tags outside of the central
debtags repository, delegating such categorization to Custom Debian
Distributionss, who have better knowledge of their target.

Not afaik, but it's easy to do.  Some examples:

  debtags grep "culture::italian" | cut -d: -f1

lists the names of all packages that provide italian-specific things.

  debtags grep "!culture::* || culture::italian" | cut -d: -f1

lists the names of all packages except the ones which provide
language-specific support NOT for italians.

  debtags grep "admin::backup && ! implemented-in::perl"

can make someone from a previous thread happy.

  debtags tagsearch <substring>

searches the tag vocabulary.

As you can see, using debtags to get package lists is easy, and
integrating its results in jigdo shoudln't be too hard.

If you do report a wishlist bug to jigdo, please X-Debbugs-Cc me so that
I can offer help (I prefer not to report the bug myself because I have
never used jigdo).
