The Primary designator is assigned to the tag. Any one tag with the same
Principal(s) may be made Primary. If a tag has only one Principal, it may
be marked as Primary as long as another of the same type is not marked
Primary.

Suppose you have John Smith assigned as Principal #1 to two tags of the
Marriage tag type. Now if one of these tags has Jane Jones as Principal #2
and the other tag has Pocahontas as Principal #2 , then both tags may be
marked as Primary. But if you add a third Marriage tag (let's assume that
John and Jane were divorced, and later John and Pocahontas wer also
divorced), and John and Jane were re-married. This third tag would have
John as Principal #1 and Jane as Principal #2, but would be marked (or
rather unmarked) as non-Primary since this tag has the same two principals
(although the other information may be different).

Thus the Primary designation is to the Tag itself.
