What kind of things should need tags? The only time I put a tag on my subject
lines is when I get an issue fixed, so I put "[Fixed]" or "[Resolved]" in my
subject line as a reply; or I prepend "[OT]" to my subject if it's off-topic
but still appropriate for this list. Otherwise, the subject line on its own
should be a sufficient visual cue.

You can skim the subjects and, if you don't want to read
it, you don't have to. Also, most modern mail clients have threaded-view
capability, so it's easy to expand or collapse a thread or one of its child
threads as you need to, which helps keep clear the listing of mails.

Difficulty is not the concern. Usefulness of such a request is, however...
