There are no headlines in the file (it's a small note). I want to tag
the file itself (or its content). It's mostly to help with full-text
search (I prefix my tags with '#' so they don't occur otherwise). I
think the notion of file tag does not really exist in org mode, but as
there is a '+#FILETAGS:' cookie (?), I was wondering if there was
infrastructure to help me enter the tags there.

Thank you. This is not what I want to do, but it's nice to know how to
do this.
