The "floating" part's easy; see the -F option to "cvs tag".

I don't know about the "constrained" part.  CVS doesn't do that
out of the box, but perhaps it can be enforced using one of the
CVSROOT/*info files.

You could set two tags, a floating one for the scripts and a
non-floating one for the humans, e.g. "Test" and "Test-20020115"
respectively; or else set only the non-floating tag, and use some
mechanism external to CVS to tell the scripts which tag
corresponds to the current test build.
