In this case the tags would be created by the group admins, so that may

My point is that there is no reason for group admins to not use
irrelevant tags for their lists. Even with a limitation of four or five
tags, tag spamming will happen.
One option would be to search only the tags that have a minimum number of uses, like tag clouds can when producing a list of tags.

Is this a question of the capabilities of the search function or the usefulness of allowing odd tags? In terms of time taken on all sides to use a conforming list, is it worth worrying about?

Even if a tag is odd, the people who are searching for such a group are probably similarly odd and will use the same tag.
