Definitely - the keywoard one use javascript based autocompletion, and
we can also use that  on other fields.

Butthe status whiteboard is meant to be free-form (as it contains much
more possible/frequently used items than  keywords), so I'd probably
wouldn't use "autocomplete", but maybe a message "this flag is not
well known - typo?" or similar.

For  those, maybe we should  promote those to actual keywords?

So is it possible: Yes
Should it be done: depends :-)
