For the past few months, I have been using org-mode in conjunction with
Visual Line mode, a new feature of Emacs 23, and found they work
together well. From the v23 NEWS file:

** Visual Line mode provides support for editing by visual lines.
It turns on word-wrapping in the current buffer, and rebinds C-a, C-e,
and C-k to commands that operate by visual lines instead of logical
lines.  This is a more reliable replacement for longlines-mode.
This can also be turned on using the menu bar, via
Options -> Line Wrapping in this Buffer -> Word Wrap

I think in the long-term many (most) org users will start enabling
this, and there will be requests for tweaks to make the two cooperate
a little better.

One customisation I would recommend for anyone using the two together
would be 

  (setq org-tags-column -75)

Trying to put the tags any further to the right will cause them to wrap
on to the next line.  Perhaps this is not too far from your suggestion
to make it the default in all cases?
