Actually, it makes a lot of sense in that release notes really need a more descriptive narrative for substantive enhancements and bug fixes.  As is we often simply list the fixes against prior releases.

Envision this whiteboard tagging would support two aspects
1) the editorial tracking that substantive ehnancment/bug fixes  have been described in the release notes
2) encourage QA/Dev or OP to describe the user impact of fixing an issue directly in the BZ so it could be picked up in a release note snippet.

I have really mixed feelings about this - sounds like a good way to
encourage pet bugs which we don't like. How is this different from just
the MAB list?
