Hi Migual, all,

I use a very similar setup as you do, one file for work, one for home.
I tagged the topmost hierarchy in each file with a corresponding tag
(:@work:, :@home:) and use inheritance for context propagation.

I also use distinct agenda views for home and work stuff.

("w" "Agenda and work items at work"
 ((agenda "" ((org-agenda-ndays 1)
              (org-agenda-prefix-format "%?-12t% s")
              (org-agenda-files (quote ("~/Daten/plan_work.org")))
               (quote (org-agenda-skip-entry-if (quote regexp) "maybe")))))
  (todo "INBOX"
          (quote (org-agenda-skip-entry-if (quote scheduled))))
         (org-agenda-files (quote ("~/Daten/plan_work.org")))))
  (stuck "" ((org-agenda-files (quote ("~/Daten/plan_work.org")))))
  (alltodo "" ((org-agenda-skip-function
                (quote (org-agenda-skip-entry-if
                        (quote notregexp) "^\\*+ \\(TICKLER\\|WAITING\\)"
                        (quote regexp) "^\\*+ NEXT .*:ag_"
                        (quote scheduled))))
                "Buggy items (missing schedule / agenda):")
               (org-agenda-files (quote ("~/Daten/plan_work.org")))))
  (tags "{^ag_.*}-{^ag_.*_\\(meeting\\|call\\)$}-maybe"
        ((org-agenda-sorting-strategy (quote (tag-up)))
            (quote regexp)
            "^\\*+ \\(DONE\\|CANCELED\\|CONTAINER\\|PROJECT\\|MAYBE\\) ")))
         (org-agenda-overriding-header "Agendas (non-regular):")
         (org-agenda-files (quote ("~/Daten/plan_work.org")))))
        ((org-agenda-skip-function (quote (org-agenda-skip-entry-if
                                           (quote scheduled)))))))
 ((org-agenda-prefix-format "")))

This sounds like an intriguing feature to me.  For my setup, I
sometimes have each tag twice in each agenda line as refiling inlines
inherited tags.

In my work agenda I have many lines similar to this one:

  In   1 d.:  TODO task A          :@work::@work:

So the @work context is there *three* times on screen:
* from the whole agenda title,
* directly as tag in the task, and
* inherited in the task.

So I have two partially orthogonal feature requests here.
* Could we show tags only once, for example, for cases where a task
  has a tag directly and if it has inherited it?
* Could we have a filter for not showing certain tags in agenda views
  at all, for example, if the tag information would be redundant due
  to information provided by the whole agenda (work agenda -> don't
  show :@work:).

Note that I cannot easily disable tag inheritance in my setup as I use
it also for propagating the :maybe: tag to descendants of projects.
