New tags are an idea, but not a very visible one.
My two cents... If the bug stayed with wnpp (as opposed to being
reassigned to ftp.debian.org) I'd prefer a new title (e.g. ITP-uploaded).
Archive maintainer who reject an upload could then retitle it to
ITP-rejected and document why. This would make it easy to see on the wnpp
page (provided these new catogories were added to the grouping).
