That's the intent (if it were to be summarised in a sentence), but I  
agree if anyone is looking for more detail that's the place to go.

I'd encourage us sharing a good Mylyn set up and putting it on the  
web site to encourage this consistency, but I think it's unreasonable  
to mandate it.

It'd be nice to enforce it now, but I'm not prepared for that kind of  
pain :) If someone else who's done more jira workflowy things wants  
to try their hand, please do. Otherwise, I figure if we at least have  
a stated pattern in agreement, if we see regular violations we should  
either review the rule, or enforce it at that point.
