Correct.  Don't add another one, just make better use of "postponed".

But we have the ability already with a tag.  Just add the issue node 
number prefixed with a # and surrounded with brackets [] that is 
blocking the fix when marking it postponed.

The new plumbing that can be added later would do some markup magic by 
providing the node title in the display of the tag similar to the way it 
does for the node body.
