We will employ FAI for our cause, but all the decision making for which we 
would have used DebTags will have happened prior to when FAI gets into 
action. I had read the FAI manual for version 2 a while back and now skimmed 
the FAI Wiki. But I must have missed what your are meaning, twice.

I did not mean to say that it must be deeper. I am already happy when we find 
some agreemend on that it would be useful.

Would you have a link for the classification thingy for me? Or the right terms 
for a google search?
