Amazing, i must say, and i'm not the only one thinking that :)

In my opinion the best way to handle your problem is that the "tag
creator" which is in this case the tomboy plugin, inserts the title
associated with the source (just like tagging a filename allow to
retrieve.. the filename). You could imagine also if a web browser uses
leaftag, it will tag the url and also store the url <title> for later

The deksbar handler will just have generic call to get_title or
get_content or get_description or whatever it ends up being..

So in this case i'd suggest to patch (or maybe just use the mechanism
they have, if any) leaftag to record these data in the db..
