If I read the code correctly it silently just doesn't work. The SAL_WARN() thing needs to show up somewhere in the UI.

It works as intended. A wrong tag or url is not supposed to work anyway. This is not just silencing an issue, but fixes the crash reported.
Regarding informing the user about what's going on, we already have another report for that: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=136291

404 is page not found, also happening when the server is down. Shouldn't happen, sure.
