The goal is to allow one resource to enter time with different billing types to the same JIRA issue. So, I might enter an hour to issue XYZABC-1 with a 'Underwater Basketweaving' type of work that ends up translating to a bill rate of x dollars. .

I've seen https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.adweb.estimations.estimationUpdate/server/overview which seems to be well liked.
We have discussed using different issues as well, but feel that could get difficult to manage. So, a task could possibly have 5 or 6 different types of work that might need to correlate with each other. One for QA, which may need to easily tie back to web dev or SE or creative versions of the same. Suddenly, changing the assignee could become a nightmare.
That plugin is interesting as well. It looks like it is right along the lines of the sort of thing we would want.
