RE : TAG and file removing

Ok, the file is now "outside" tag.
It has been deleted from client side.
File can be found in Attic folder on server side.

My question 1 is : how should I reassign tag to this file ?

Is it OK to checkout the file only with a date,
then tag it with exactly the same tag name as before ?

Question 2 : as, in my opinion, the are no reason to
remove a file from a tag, since the tag is here to
keep version history, it's a way to "named" a moment
versus remember the exact date with second precision.

So could CVS server developper remove this dangerous "feature" ?
The rules could be "no commit on a tag".
(OK to commit in a branche, but not in a tag).
