The Future Of Resolutions

I'm still looking at getting customised resolutions in early in the 2.19
cycle, so I thought I'd solicit feedback on the new resolution set.

Existing installations should have their resolution sets maintained
(even if they've changed the hardcoding), but new installations will
receive an updated set to reflect years of Bugzilla experience.

Without further ado, the following is my current plan:

FIXED A fix for this bug is checked into the tree and tested.
WORKSNOW The problem was reproduced, but seems to have disappeared by
changes not made on this bug.
INVALID This is not a proper report.
FEATURENOTBUG This is not a bug, it's a feature.
NOTWORTHIT It should be fixed in a perfect world, but this isn't a
perfect world, so it won't be. (probably should be deleted by OSS)
DUPLICATE The problem is a duplicate of an existing bug.
WORKSFORME All attempts at reproducing this bug were futile, reading the
code produces no clues as to why this behavior would occur.
MOVED The bug has been moved to another Bugzilla installation.
MISSING When a bug report can't be dealt with because an external
resource (eg a page at a URL) is missing. (NOINFO maybe, after sitting
in NEEDINFO status)
CAREFACTORZERO When the person responsible really just does not care.
MUPPET The reporter is a muppet.

In particular, WONTFIX, REMIND and LATER are gone, and good riddance.
