Calibre Feature Request / Idea: Tags as Status Tracker

Just a thought that occurred to me today: have an option to use tags as status indicators for metadata downloads.

I added some 600 CHM files to my library, then went to download metadata. 50 failed; I could've cut and pasted the file names, etc., but why not have the option to add a tag to the entries indicating whether the metadata download was successful or failed?

Then I could simply filter by tag to see which individual ebooks needed attention.

Thanks.

But that sort of response kicks you in the teeth and forces action.

Thank you, Kovid.
