I'm adding "Triaged" in the Keywords field, and this is documented on
the /Components_and_Triagers page.  

I was told this keyword "already existed" in Bugzilla, but such keywords
are only useful to the degree that people agree on what they mean and
know to use them.  Is there a central dictionary for such items?  If so,
I have not come across it.

It would be easier to perform system-wide tasks and recruit triage
volunteers if there were universal procedures and definitions.  I mean,
it does make sense to vary procedure if doing so makes sense for a
particular component, but I think not-particularly-necessary variations
do have a cost.
