Reading QR codes tends to be more "select your QR reader app, point
the camera at a QR code, it is automatically read" than your
description. So unless the user has NFC-reading enabled all the time,
an un-necessary drain on their phone battery, they need to enable the
function in order to read the NFC tag, making it not really much
quicker or easier than reading a QR code.
But the NFC tag idea definitely sounds "cool."
