FYI, looks like tags can be reserved again.

I've gone back to the Adobe pages and found a new reference
for reserving tags. The new email address is gapdevsup@adobe.com.
I have not tried it so I do not know if someone is listening.

Here is the reference and a quote.

                                In order to avoid conflict with other
developers, we encourage
                                developers with the need for
application-specific or proprietary tags to
                                contact us and register for a block of
private tags. We will assign you
                                one to five TIFF tags at no charge. To
requests private TIFF tags send
                                an e-mail message to the Adobe Solutions
Network Developer Program
                                at gapdevsup@adobe.com. Please include
your name, company name,
                                address, phone, fax, e-mail, number of
tags requested, and what the
                                tag(s) will be used for.
