Rebecca kindly pointed me towards this very helpful article: http://www.elegantthemes.com/blog/tips-tricks/best-practices-for-using-categories-and-tags-in-wordpress which pointed out the error of my ways!
On our site we just use categories and we mis-use them.
I was particularly drawn to the analogy of a book where the Chapter Headings are Categories and the Index are the tags.
So we need to tidy things up…
My worry is found in the article and the line “they’re difficult to change later on without losing backlinks, search engines rankings, or littering your website with 404 errors.” And it’s the 404s which would drive me mad.
We’ll have very little established linkage so is this likely to be a big problem?
