It's a bit intangible and not entirely predicated on whether we're using
the keyword or flag setup, I think. Currently when we're considering
bugs we use a search that excludes closed bugs, so even if you flag a
closed bug with F14Blocker or whatever, it won't get on the agenda for
the review meeting unless someone explicitly mentions it. I'm not sure
Jesse's proposed system necessarily makes any difference to that; even
if we're using flags, I don't think we'd automatically start doing
searches that included closed bugs. But of course, it might make sense
not to worry about the bug status with the more fine-grained info the
flag system would provide.

Now I've waffled a bit =) I think the ultimate answer is that it's
certainly _possible_ we could use the proposed flag system to consider
blocker status even for closed bugs, yeah.
