From the AnyWare Development Consulting blog, a really interesting suggestion for grouping tasks in Jira by tagging that other Jira users may want to check out.

Component field settings ARE tagging but with the wrong name. I’m going to set up “components” (in Jira parlance) for “Must have”, “Very desirable”, “Wishlist” as well as other non-priority terms like “Web”, “Search”, “Content”, “Browser compatibility”. These are not strictly components at all but if you look beyond the name you can get exactly what you want – and even better, the Open Issues tab will now show me how many “Must have” issues there are etc – and provide links to view lists of them so that I can review them, bulk change, and assign them to versions in my roadmap.
