In addition, you can use the commitinfo scripting mechanism to stop commits
for just about any criteria: bad code formatting, missing bug number
in the log message, etc.

You can implement your custom restrictions in a script specified in 
the taginfo administrative file.  The taginfo script could check the
user identity and reject the operation if that identity is blacklisted.

(But really, if you can't trust some developers to tag properly, how
can you trust them to commit anything?  Learning a tagging system and
sticking to it is far less complex than all the things you have to do
to become a competent software developer. :)
