I had never heard of these tags until reading your post so I googled it and wound up on another discussion board and learned:
They do exist. I saw a picture and they look cool.
They appear to be for UK customers and are quite freely given to elite card members.
More than a few people have commented that advertising one's affluence on his/her luggage with such a tag is ill-advised given how many bags go missing or are ransacked by baggage handlers, others.
However, I suppose if you have bags that cost $1k or more a copy the baggage handlers already know to check for goodies inside, so an Amex vanity tag won't do any more harm on that front. However, while they do look nice, it's generally a bit tacky to be plastering a corporate brand on one's personal belongings unless there is some other benefit to wearing the tags on your luggage.
