My suggestion is to have two tag delimiters, the comma and '>'. Tags separated with commas could be alphabetized, but tags separated with '>' always follow one another. They're still separate tags, but would mean that for the library view, those two tags would always follow one another for sorting purposes, regardless of alphabetical order.
