As far as automated processes, this has been declined rather forcefully. Given the presence of a 5 tag limit, a tag implication system can become very messy. There's a couple other posts on varying other kinds of dependencies - I don't think there's a strict rule since there's different scenarios between versioning, subsets, and other forms. Eins, zwei. –  Grace Note Jan 27 '11 at 20:35

But we need to be careful and proactive, since isn't necessarily related to , and there are many tags which could be located in multiple places in the hierarchy (none come to mind at the moment).
