Some kind of mapping can be found I'm sure. I guess Piotr and/or
yourself will send something in at some point?
There could be other uses for tags, BGP has 4-byte ASNs that you might
want to put in a tag, OSPF has a 4-byte tag field. So, might as well go
with (at least) 4-bytes on that basis, I guess.
