It's probably just the terminology. No, I'm not suggesting slipping the date.

I did not talk about the titles, I suggested some way to be able to sort
out requirements (or goals) and see which bugs need to be fixed to meet
some specific goal.

I guess that our goals will be quite aggressive and we probably won't meet all
of them. And if 3 days before milestone I see that 100 bugs left and to meet
goal N I need to fix one bug and to meet goal M I need to fix 10 bugs I'll
probably start with that only bug necessary to meet the goal N. For that
reason I need to be able to find bugs affecting reqs (goals). I suggest
that we use reg (goal) name in comments, so that we can easily find which
JIRA issues impact this specific req.

One more question:
should the reqs (goals) be on website or wiki?
