Sean - one things with the proposed wording is that it's not clear what 
"Enhancement" means. Is this strictly the issue type in JIRA? 
Performance fixes are good examples where they are sometimes bugs, 
sometimes enhancements.  It's clear the process change is to catch 
feature changes early but not clear whether it's applicable to backport 
requests where the issue type is a coin toss.
