Disttags are not required. The only requirements are:
* unique EVRs across Fedora releases (actually, Koji currently even enforces unique VRs regardless of Epoch),
* upgrade paths across releases (EVRs going up from one release to the next, i.e. currently F9 < F10 < Rawhide and F9 updates < F10 updates < Rawhide) and
* upgrade paths within releases (EVRs not going backwards).

Disttags are just a tool to make that easier to satisfy (but you can still screw it up), there's nothing requiring them.
