Beyond what Mikhail stated:

    - Multiple people can be paged, only one assigned
    - I can put more metadata in the tag name than assignable
      (to help people decide who to page)

But it's an experiment. If it's not useful we can delete the tags.

OK, the tag served it's purpose! I planned to delete it because there
are lots of bugs in the issues tracker and no one has been methodically
tagging them bug or not, so it seemed that the tag was just not that
helpful.  Just look at Stack's issues list: 
who is tagging things as bugs!

discuss/enhancement/question are useful and I support tags for them.
Presently we have "priority: enhancement" but we can rename that as

Agreed with Mikhail; priority within milestone.

Sure! I wonder, however; for tickets that are tagged this way, I feel
the onus is on us to write a clear spec at the top of the bug for what
is desired (even better: link to a commit with a test!)  Will help
contributors a lot.
