Not sure we want to be too narrow, or that our other issues are that
narrow, but I see your concern. How about: "best practices for
identifying fixed content"?
(not that I'm keen on "identifying" but it's the fashion)

Since there are worries (if I heard correctly) that the TAG takes on
work areas without community interest, maybe we should find at least
one non-TAG "customer" who thinks it's an appropriate TAG issue (maybe
we should do this for *all* TAG issues). Since there's no cost to
thinking so, other than being bugged by unlikely "are you happy yet?"
emails, it shouldn't be too hard in each case. Just speculating aloud,
I don't know whether I believe this.
