I have 8.2 running so I'll give it another shot here.

Sounds like a good plan...

OK. Hierarchical tags? With drag/drop on individual images or selected
groups? Something akin to the way f-spot handles (or 'used to handle' as
there won't be that many users left) tagging.

Yes, that is a given. MediaGoblin handles it OK, OpenPhoto used to have
an experimental implementation which offloaded transcoding to external
services (Amazon Elastic Transcoder). While it can be worthwhile to have
this as an option, I prefer to keep this type of service in-house.

I'll have a look at it. If Gallery+ manages to convince me where it used
to let me down, I might go that way instead. If not, expect some
competition :-)
