Comment (by davidmeade):


 lloydbudd - you are probably correct that the word 'specification' is
 better suited to the microformats publication.  However as Nazgul points
 out + representing a space is part of the html standard.  This standard
 has influenced specifications like rel="tag" microformat and has been
 honored to such a degree that its could be considered a defacto standard.

 With a "+" used in tag slugs rather than the "-", Wordpress can still use
 "pretty" urls (http://example.com/tag/daisy+chains) that meet the html
 standard and the microformats defacto-standard (which so many search
 engines/aggregators expect).  It cannot do so with the "-" used in tag
