Details

Because it only allows bookmarks to be tagged, the tagging services observes bookmarks removal. If the last "regular" bookmark for a URL is removed, it removes the tags set for that URL.

However, changes to bookmarks URLs are not observed, meaning that if the a new URL is set for the last remaining bookmark for a URL, the tags for the old URL are still in place, even though that URL isn't bookmarked.

This bug is hidden by the fact the edit-uri transaction takes care of "moving" the tags. I think it would be better to do that in the tagging service itself.
