I think that you will eventually find a context in which you can't use 
commas and in which you will want to put the tags, and then you will 
regret not having just used underscore or dash or capitals as separator.

here are six fairly common ways to join multiple words:

pure-data frequency-modulation synthesis
pure_data frequency_modulation synthesis
pure.data frequency.modulation synthesis
puredata frequencymodulation synthesis
pureData frequencyModulation synthesis
