Event Type form tag name completion

Is there any way to make the event type form's field "tag" auto-complete tag names based on existing tags?
Are there any plans for this feature in upcoming releases?

It is very easy for one to make a mistake in tag name when using a single tag in multiple event types.
It appears for me that it is a base requirement for setting a field with side-registry values, like multi-select fields in Jira.

Why are you doing so much eventtype creation/modification? This is almost always a "once per sourcetype per datamodel" endeavor. Are you talking about inside of splunk or JIRA?

We are going to continuously create new event types when we discover new patterns of received log events.
We are linking alerts with event types via tags so the set of tags will be rarely changed but new event types will keep coming so we want to be sure that we assign correct tags to them so we don't miss new hits of the same pattern.
