Great to see new package.

My opinions are not related to recording it to NonGNU ELPA.

Related to design, and being heavy user of 1736 different tags, it is
alright to search within titles, but that only titles are tags is not
quite in place. That it isn't unique to ekg, does not make it
better. Maybe there is no need to talk about tags in that place.

I search by title, and by tags, or by both, and by other complexities.

A document may be named "Certificate of Good Standing" and can have
tag "todo" or tag "Armenia", or "free" or anything that is not
directly related to title.

I leave that to you. However, I see that the idea comes from the
following problem you encountered:

Your paragraph has explained something, I get only vague clue about
the main point.

Can you provide screenshot?

Is your main point to show the buffer with backlinks at all times?

Or to record the backlinks in first place?

That is good, I may test it and see how it works and if it is scalable.
