Why don't you want to backport it?
Sometimes it's too much work to backport
if there are merge conflicts.

CLOSED->UPSTREAM or CLOSED->NEXTRELEASE both exist, but honestly I
would probably put the bug in DEFERRED if you plan to fix it but can't
yet for some reason. A comment describing the timeline for when the
fix will hit Fedora is probably sufficient. The key for any of these
states is to remember to actually do the fix.
