Either of those sounds good.  Fully-fledged tags would be the easiest
for most reporters to remember to use, but I wonder if this pollutes the
tag namespace.

Would that be only for generic issues with a port, not specific to a
package?  I doubt this would be used much.  These bugs might typically
be reassigned to kernel packages or eglibc anyway.
