Users don't follow conventions or instructions when filing tickets. I don't think users can be fixed to do this.

port_portname wouldn't help with short port names like e, q and R, because it would also find tickets about ports whose names begin with e, q and R. Granted, what we have in Trac doesn't make it easy to find tickets about those ports either, especially tickets about those ports *and* other ports, where the Port field in the issue tracker contains multiple port names.
