For broader classifications, there's nothing wrong about tracking tasks.
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
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
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
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T64374> 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
