Use "ID" as tag identifier instead of Title/Name

I find the use of the "Title" property (or "Name", depending on the context) as the identifier for tags created via the API a bit impractical: The value is shown to the user when they scan the tag, so using something unique (integer or a guid) may be confusing and a bit of an eyesore. And if you want pretty and easy to understand titles, it's easy to get naming conflicts within the same category.
I can work around this issue by creating a category for each tag, but it's a crappy solution.

I suggest adding an "ID" property to the tags, a string, which is used to retrive/modify the tag. This is never shown to the user, whereas the "Title" property remains as it is.

What do you think?
