It's the normal way to remove a file from a (non-branch) tag

This is a way, not the "normal way".

   cvs up -r tagname a.txt
   cvs rm -rf a.txt
   cvs ci a.txt

I think  that this operation should be  forbidden, don't u think this ?

It most certainly shouldn't be forbidden, though an argument might be made for marking the file "dead" on the branch and leaving the tag in place. I don't think I'd bother with it without use case that was meaningfully different from the tag deletion, though.
