No, although people have written scripts to do something similar
(del.icio.us has an API that gives you complete control over your
bookmarks). This sort of behaviour is frowned upon: there's a
bookmarklet around that automatically chooses your tags for you, and the
creators of del.icio.us are considering banning it. They may allow a
default 'system:readlater' tag for untagged items, but in general it
defeats the purpose of the system to add things untagged.
