Metadata for Metafilter Pony request: would it be possible to have a box that pops up that says something like "We noticed you're using tags X and Y, here are some other tags commonly associated with X and Y," to improve the descriptive qualities of user provided tags?

I figure this would probably be pretty hard on the database, and probably difficult to code, but it seems like it would improve the descriptive qualities of tags. I always hesitate when making a post as I get down to the bottom of the page, since I want to make the metadata as descriptive and useful as possible, but I tend to blank when it gets down to that box. Would it be possible to automate the process and have a box of related tags that populates on preview and provides users with helpful suggestions?
