But all of the public-facing branches (I think RELEASE_* are the only
branches most people care about) are in llvm/tags/* (or will be in
llvm/tags/RELEASE_29/* for 2.9), right?

So I guess it will be a problem if 3.0 is in llvm/tags/RELEASE_30/*.
This is perhaps one reason not to use the branching scheme Bill
proposed.  That's not a very satisfactory result.
