Thought I'd pipe up and add why we use Resolved/Later.  Maybe it will help
someone have that breakthrough moment as they are thinking about this issue.

What we need is a clear way to mark an entry for a later release.  We are in
a very regulated environment (medical devices) and need to carefully
document which issues we decide to not address in a release (and why).  By
using the resolved/later, we are "forced" to enter a comment (cause we set
that parameter) and hopefully will enter the evaluation that indicates why
the issue doesn't impact efficacy or safety.

Now resolved/later isn't  perfect (after all, the issue isn't really
resolved, just delayed).  But it gets close (at least for our needs).
