It would seem like this is the case.

@George Edison is right, there do not seem to be any plans to change this...
Oct 9 '10 at 18:06
So it's not something that can be changed per site
Oct 9 '10 at 19:28
Per site, no. In the future, who can say?

@rchern: As this would have a direct relationship to the SE engine itself, I can with confidence say that it is unlikely this will be changed on a per-site basis.

@George, that's what I meant. On a per-site basis, I would not expect it to be changed. In the future could the number be bumped up to 6 across the network? Doubtful, but I'm not staff. (:

Well it depends, in the database is there 5 fields which are for tags or is there a post_meta table which has 2 column value and key? If it's the latter than the tag limit could be increased on a per site basis.
