I see this more as:

If you had 2 fields:
General subject line
Change description

Would I divide "General subject line" into multiple fields even though
there was no technical necissity to do so at the moment, but would
provide for cleaner code to allow for features to possibly be more
easily added in the future?

hmm tough one, as I really like clean code, but I think I would leave
it as is for now since splitting the General subject line field using
a perl expression seems feasible and easy to do should the need arise
in the future.
