Something like that could work although it will be a bit fragile since 
it will rely on scraping magic strings. Probably no more so than the 
rest of the setup though.

I have experimented with ISSUE-4 adding "HTML5-SPEC-SECTIONS 
the-doctype" at the end of the description field. The notes field seems 
more appropriate but appears to be immutable, which I had forgotten. I 
assume that one issue could be associated with more than one section so 
the field would have a space-separated list of markers. The change in 
magic marker string is entirely due to not checking what you originally 

Assuming there are no objections I will write some code that uses this 
approach this evening.
