I strongly disagree. An issue (bug) is only open when there's a
decision to be made about what to do with it. When you've decided that
you won't fix it it doesn't so much fix the bug but it does close the
issue. People finding bugs that are in the product should look into
won't fix, open and related tags; issues not being open doesn't mean
they're fixed.

Maybe it's possible to change the default search (or default
search-here-for-your-to-be-reported-bug) target to include those
targets by default?

Kind regards,
