Could we have a standardized list of headers ? Those would double as
tags for Nova bugs, so the "scaling" team could see a list of bugs in
their area by searching for the "scaling" tag.

The EC2 team has been meeting a few times already, and started triaging
and working on EC2 bugs. I think it belongs to the active category :)
