Is there any limits in number of tags can be applied in an artifact in DNG?

 DNG version:

We are trying to apply multiple tags in a DNG artefact. Our use-case results in applying more than 100 tags in an artifact. Is it feasible to apply any number of tags to the artifact?
What are the implications if we use more than 100 tags?

 I'm not aware of any hard limit to the number of tags (there might be; I just don't know)

Some possible issues:
  • At a minimum, the UI gets very cluttered when you have a lot of tags, so it gets hard for the user. 
  • There could be some performance challenges--you should test it.
  • It could be challenging to export, e.g., to Excel, since there is a limit to the size of cells in Excel
  • It can for a team to consistently apply tags. It can be easy to "infect" your tag list with a mis-typed tag, which then others select by making use of tag auto-complete.

Have you considered alternative ways to implement your use case? For example, where the possible values are known (and finite), some teams use an attribute with sorted, enumerated values. Users then muilti-select the values of interest.
