You didn't mention what "user" you'll be using for these usertags.  It was
probably the obvious choice, but just in case, may I suggest using

Sounds fair to me.  I would like to see some tagging mechanism for bugs that
are general 64-bit bugs as well, so we could theoretically spread the load
on these between porters for all three archs.

BTW, given that most of the cases of "broken" packages *should* be turned
into FTBFS bugs by the maintainer in the absence of any other action by the
porters, I would suggest this is the appropriate category for FTBFS bugs
even if we aren't planning to proactively usertag them.
