I realize the wording before is bad. Here's a revamp:

How many global, persistent tags can you have with org-mode? I seem to have
org-tag-alist with its fast tag selection maxed out at 26. Is that the
limit for it, lower-case letters in the alphabet? I would like to have
potentially hundreds of tags as tags seem to be vaguely the same as a book
index. And I would like this large body of tags available globally. I see
there is an org-tag-persistent-alist but how does this differ from the
org-tag-alist? I suppose org-tag-persistent-alist can't have fast selection
keys? I realize, of course, you can simply make up any symbol, place it
within colons and there's your tag; but I'm looking for a way to have
persistent global tags by the hundreds.
