Feature request: tracking of patches that are -stable candidates

So I'm not sure what's the best way of storing this information or
implementing feature, but one thing that would be really handy is that
some patches should be candidates for inclusion in the -stable tree.  

We generally would know this before the patch is accepted and pushed to
Linus, so I think it needs to be tracked via a patch property separate
from the state property.   A patch could be either "normal (not for
stable)", "stable candidate", and "accepted into stable tree".   It
would be nice if there was a report where the maintainer could see all
of the patches which were in state "accepted" and "stable candidate",
since these would be the ones where we would want to create a bundle to
send to Chris Wright and Greg KH.

Does this make sense as something that Patchwork could and should track?
