    Definitely the logic and conflict resolution would not be simple. I'm not sure if this is possible but to start with it should be relatively much simpler to have two types of tags; shared and personal, to get around it. Shared tags would obviously only become possible when the folder was shared and when someone was tagging, they would need to tag with sharable tags in order for them to be visible by others. Their personal tags would remain but only they would be able to search on them.

    For some applications, consider the apparently-just-unveiled Mailboxes: Sharing vs. Relationships » Zimbra :: Blog
    The implementation details aren't too important, it doesn't have to be accomplished with shared tags.

    What is needed is a way to group contacts together in a meaningful way so that two users can each see a set of contacts that are bound together in a meaningful way. For example, all contacts that are in the USA and work in the insurance industry. If I am sharing contacts, I want everyone in a group to be able to group contacts together to make meaningful relationships and share those relationships.

    Its could be implemented as a shared saved search instead of shared tags. But the key thing is to allow custom fields so that those relationships can be created.

    Quite... whatever the mechanism, it would be good to have it have the versatility of tags and easy usability but also applicable to tasks, documents etc.
