Rob,
Currently the interconnect paths
assume a default tag and only few
icc paths require tags that differ
from the default ones. Encoding the
tags in the interconnect arg cells
would force all paths to specify
the tags. I guess that's okay.

Saravana,
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/11527589/
^^ is an example of interconnect-tag useage.
