Maybe the best way forward would be to add to the wiki page any tags
that one creates when triaging bugs. It is difficult to come up with a
taxonomy/nomenclature by just thinking about the problem of coming up
with unique tags, but when triaging, one can easily see patterns, and
come up with tags to identify sub-sets of bugs.

As an alternative, one could propose use of a new tag, and get it
idiot-proofed on the mailing list before putting it to work.

I hope I make sense.
