Is there any such thing as a permanent tag within CVS? By which I mean a tag which, once attributed to a file, cannot be removed except by authorized administrative means?

Before I answer, why do you want this feature?

We are developing in accordance with DO178B (FAA) software lifecycle,
and I have to keep permanent records of baselines. During our "release"
process do a checkout of files against a tag, and stuff those files away
in a separate PVCS repository. What I want to do is makes sure that
there is no way that a set of files/revisions that is established at
that time cannot get inadvertently corrupted downstream of the snapshot.

My shorthand way of describing that is a permanent tag that, once
attached, cannot be moved or removed, except in exceptional and unusual
cases, and then only by authorized people - in this case the
Configuration Management group.
