Fair enough.

Given what I foresee, simply having another columns in there named
evtstags with the exact same content as evttags would be the simplest
and most natural implementation, really.

I don't foresee more generic needs here, unless you can convince me that
we need both a. a full stack of arbitrarily nested commands and b. a way
to match and target any level of that stack.
