I’ve been using a crude modified version of Put On Layer where I disabled the recursion and removed the context menu and moved it to the menu bar.
Someone at Sketchucation Forum had recently asked if there was an ‘updated’ version of the plugin and I mentioned my modified version.
Anyway with much help from Dan Rathbun attached is a plugin that will assign an object to a tag by way of the context menu. It will also allow you to create a new tag.
It is not recursive, i.e. it will not assign the tag to a selected object’s nested objects.
Of course it’s not generally recommended to assign raw geometry to anything other than untagged. This plugin will not stop you from doing this.

If you’re interested there is also Curic’s LA extension which does the same (and more)
