“If it moves…tax it”?

President Reagan once said:

“Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Does Reagan’s theory apply to the recently floated idea of taxing “virtual world” transactions?

Would the government in essecne be taxing TCP/IP packets?
