This is exactly what it says, an unimplemented feature (akin to mutt

There are almost no letters left of these escapes, and I don't think
that it's good to use (more than) one for user-tags for the time being,
since there are other requests in the BTS to use escapes for "source"
packages and others, which probably would see wider use.
So marking +wontfix for the time being.

It already says "debtags" twice in the paragraph that you pasted, I
would think that it's clear enough.
Presumably, since it mentions "tags and debtags", they were two
different kinds of tags in the past -- I don't remember them, since I
rarely use them or even have them installed.
But in general, tag==debtag and the others are user-tags (and always
named in that way), I don't think that there's ambiguity.
Note to maintainers: the requests in the other messages have been cloned
to other bug reports.
