Can I have a Tag that doesn't translate to a category?

Problem: I want to be able to easily download different portions of my library to multiple Sony's in our household.
Original Solution: Used individual tags for everyone. This meant that each Sony has categories of everyone's names which I don't like. Is there a way to create a Tag that doesn't show as a Category? That would be my favorite choice.
Possibly New Solution: I just saw the comments field that might work to let me select which books to download. I don't like it as much as Tags because I can't make easy global changes. For some reason I change my tagging methodolgy with some frequency. My other problem would be converting from my user Tags to comments. I have my extensive library all currently Tagged and I have spent a lot of time download summaries for nearly all my books. Is there a programatic way (easy please) where, based on a tag, I can insert a comment at the front of all existing comments?

Any other recommendations? Thanks..................Jackie

If your aren't married to the idea of knowing the publisher then this would be the ideal field to use for Mom, Dad, Son, Daughter, etc...

If you're talking about Categories in catalogs, use tags like this:
Code:
[Mom]
[Dad]
[Son]
[Daughter]
The catalog builder ignores tags wrapped in brackets (assuming you haven't changed the default settings). When you want to download a particular subset of the library for [Son], search for
Code:
tag:[Son]
which will display only the books tagged with [Son]. You can now download that subset to a connected device, and build a catalog with only those titles included. Because the tag is wrapped in brackets, it won't be included as a Genre.

Collections generated form tags on the reader itself are all or nothing. Sending books to Sony devies does not yet support [] to ignore a tag being made into a collection.

The next release will support ignoring tags within [] when generating collections on the PRS line of readers.
