It's not yet implemented, but it's clearly on our TODO list. (Currently we already preserve the tags of the highest-dimensional entities whenever possible: cf. demos/boolean/fragments_numbering.geo.)

If I perform a Boolean operation with them I lose the out/inside names and since the numbering of the surfaces changes from the creation of new objects I can't find the inside/out labels any more. Is there a way to preserve the names from the old objects and pass them to the new object? For example the newly created surfaces (plane 40 - plane 25) in the new object that were part of the out surface before could be preserved.
