thanks for som great extension! Im working on a project right now that could really benefit from your tags modules.
Are you planing on uppgrading them to work with TL 2.8?

Right now there are some features that are not suported like the images size override in the news/eventslists etc.

I also have a suggestion of improvment. Rather then extending the news/eventlist modules, why not create separate listing modules. So in back-end you would have the option to choose Newslist and Newslist tags.
