Analysis and mild tuning. Perhaps I'm strange, but this is one
of thing things that I consider pre-sale when working with a
provider with which I'm unfamiliar. It's not a deal-breaker,
but is something to which I pay attention.
Note that this is most significant for Web content providers,
for obvious reasons.
Several providers tag internally, although some do not disclose
their tags. Granularity and detail vary widely. (Compare C&W
with GBLX, for example.)
