This should be fine. Depending on why you're doing this, you may want to
then delete the old tags from this new location using

cvs rtag -d <old_tag_name> OtherModule/SubDir/a

There's no reason to do this at all, ever. Look at the -r and -F options to
tag and rtag. Even if I don't understand exactly what you mean, I can't
think of anything you could possibly be talking about that can't be done
with ordinary cvs commands.

That's probably okay, if no one is using these accidental directories. The
problems that would be created, if any, would be for checked out copies of
these directories.
