Is that an answer or a question?
Anyone who wants to search the database can do so and cover _closed_
tickets in addition to open ones. I don't see the need to keep tickets
open (or clone them) in cases where a status such as WONTFIX, RAWHIDE
or UPSTREAM is appropriate.

Not every ticket immediately is a todo item (e.g. some only track defects
till something definite is found out), but those tickets that are answered
by the pkg maintainer with some action may get _closed_, with the pkg
maintainer having the final word about whether there will be an update.
Reporters (and potential contributors), who think they know better, are
free to propose a feasible solution.
