Then this is a failure of the router & not the tagging.

In the same way as renderings, don't tag for the routers.

Although I'm no expert on this subject, isn't it a similar situation to 
how a router would deal with a roundabout with multiple exits with the 
perimeter of the area being the roundabout? Please correct me if I'm wrong.
