I like consistency as much as anybody, but in this case, why make 20
years of developers suffer?

On all of my projects that I switched to git, I INSTANTLY got rid of the
silly CVS restriction of having - and .s in tags with no reservations
whatsoever. I use git tag -n with a small enough number that keeps me
from seeing the hideous old tags.

I'm with Ken.
