This should be nice for event tracking too.  All calendar stuff should
have an entry but can be filtered out using 'keywords' or 'tag'.  So if
the application is generic, it is useful to everyone.  So say, an
ambassador wants to see EMEA meetings ... he/she can select two tags,
"meetings" and "EMEA".  Something like that.  Summary: a tagging feature
will be nice.
