No.

I think it'd be nice for this to have the _alternative_ to put the
tags into the properties drawer and occasionally view and edit them
with a column view:

#+SPECIAL_PROPERTIES: TAGS=drawer:PROPERTIES   <= only a suggestion
* TODO xy
  :PROPERTIES:
  :TAGS:     :work:home:
  :END:

Maybe this could also be useful for some other special properties, see
the thread
"Why are special properties like CLOSED etc. not in the properties drawer?"
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/40571/focus=40579

Btw.: I did also not find a way to change the alignment of tags in the
agenda view like it is possible for Org files with org-tags-column ->
another reason I kind of avoid tags and try to use CATEGORY instead,
but there it is not easy to have multiple items like e. g. `work' and
`home'. What a pity that this way I miss tag features like e. g. the
well supported tag search or the single key tag setting described at
the end of
