Another option may be a 'Search-Quality' project or some such with associatedd board.  We could create columns for each category and drop them where they belong. The problem here though might be that some things sanely fit into two categories, but a workboard can only have them in one place.

I agree in theory, but I'm trying not to advocate against standard practice in the developer community. The first link I sent states "In Phabricator, it would be better to create a Project (tag) to categorize this type of work", and the entire sentence (!) is linked to the other page, which states:

Creating new tracking tasks (tasks that "automatically" get resolved when all its dependency tasks are resolved) in Phabricator is discouraged. It is recommended to create a project instead.

So it seems that someone somewhere doesn't like tracking tasks. Neither discussion page shed any light.

The whiteboard sounds very nice. I found this ticket from about 2 years ago, and the idea of "personal tags" or something else similar to the Bugzilla whiteboard for Phabricator was discussed very, very briefly and the ticket declined and closed.

In bugzilla's last years we've had a field "whiteboard", used for personal notes. You could just edit the task description to add your own keywords at the bottom. For broader classifications, there's nothing wrong about tracking tasks.
