I assume that the TAGS and tags files will not go into the repo.

Why not? This is only the devel branch; they don't go into releases.

Adding tags/TAGS to the repo would increase its size for almost no use.
Creating the tags file takes less than a second.

The size is inconsequential.

Drawback of not having these in the repo and not in .gitignore
is that a 'git status' complains about untracked files.

OK, this is a good reason.
