There is nothing to prevent the user from entering his "fully 
qualified name" components as space-separated keywords in the tag 
field for the journal entry.  Then the Journal search function (I 
just tried it on 8.2) will show only those entries whose keywords 
match all strings entered in the Journal search box.  [The principal 
problem is that the current implementation does not enforce keyword 
order, nor keyword length - if an entry tagged "Ind Zip" matches, so 
will an entry tagged "Zipfiles Index".]
