Yes, branches/releases and tags/releases would need to be specially
handled; I'm not sure if it's possible to import them as just more
branches and tags, or if they'd have to be removed entirely. I wouldn't
call that a spectactular failure, though - you should still have trunk
and the various feature branches, which is all you need to submit
