Why?  What difference does it make?

You *could* do that, but it's really not a good idea to mess with the
contents of the RCS files directly unless you really have to.  In this
case, you can use cvs admin -n to create new tags that are aliases of
the existing tags and then delete the old tags (either with cvs tag or
cvs admin -n).
