The articles which are technical in nature should have a label (not necessarily a tag) that shows whether the article is meant for beginners, intermediate, advanced, or some other designation that's appropriate.

Actually, all articles have a field in them for Skill Level that can be set to Not Applicable (for stuff like reviews, interviews, etc), Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. This was so people wouldn't have to remember to tag them as such. To be honest I don't really know how this field is applied to the article system - it may still need to be fully integrated. But I have been making sure all articles submitted have the field properly set. The idea certainly was to make it easy to find articles for a certain skill level and also notify readers of the skill level required
