The style of the tags is not a big issue for me but personally I would consider changing them a bit. Mostly I would not use a gradation for the background. Either use:

1) a solid background with white lettering. Different background colors per tag are OK but not essential as the text for the tags look different enough to be able to easily spot them. The fact the they are reversed in the box will set them off on the page.
2) white background with color lettering like the current data elements (CO, EL). This would keep a visual consistency with what is already in TV.
3) No background with color lettering. In this case they could be regular text instead of an image although you might want to bold the text since thinner letters with color have a tendency to feel a bit weak.

I lean toward #1 or #2.

Anyway, those are suggestions but none of it is a big issue for me. It would be a bigger issue if the interface were used regularly by editors rather than developers.
