It kinds of depends what the rules are. The only thing I do globally as a default is an attribute rule that's a superset of what I would do for others, so I don't have to explicitly identify anything except what has to get more than that. So I don't end up needing to tag InCommon/eduGAIN at all.

You can tag that yourself if you want by just adding a filter rule to the InCommon source saying tag if not registered by InCommon, of course.
