Perhaps, although I'm concerned about the overwhelming number of choices we already have and ask users to navigate and understand.  There have been multiple bikeshed-of-doom threads about the whole question of issue status names and meanings, for example:

"Reorganise project issue statuses"

Right.  This would be slick, but would require some new plumbing:

"relationships between issues integrated with the status field"

Other related topics:

"Provide a mechanism for issue meta discussions"

"Enable CCK and node_reference"
