There's an alias feature that lets you name bugs (as long as it starts
with a letter, you can include numbers in it). aliases can be used
interchangeably with the bug IDs almost everywhere you can put a bug ID.
It probably wouldn't be too hard to hack post_bug.cgi to automatically
assign an alias based on your criteria when a new bug is filed.
