It's a little unfortunate to have this tag sprayed across all the
request nodes in the path, even though it's really a single value. If
we thought there were likely to be more attributes common to a path
that a provider might want access to, we could add a pointer to the
path in icc_req, then stick the tag in the path. But if the tag ends
up being the only thing worth looking at, then I guess what you have
now is slightly better.
