I was looking into this, too. While I did not find a way to tag changes
automatically, I found a keyboard shortcut for applying a conditional tag:
Highlight text to tag
Enter enough letters of tag name to differentiate it from other tag names
If the tag name is a person's name, you can simply press Ctrl-4, move cursor
to message bar area, and type "John" or whatever.
