Hi Mathias,

I'm not exacly sure (yet) how post processors for NodeTypes works, but 
maybe that's the way how to handle it. Something like that:


Have a look at NodeType TYPO3.Neos:Plugin and its postprocessor 

Just fill up $configuration param there with your items for the tag 
property (in case of doubt how the $configuration is exacly structured, 
\TYPO3\Flow\var_dump() will help you ;-)
