Can you explain (other than the comment-to-reopen) how this is different
from the existing status INCOMPLETE? It seems like people use this for
resolving things where someone is ignoring an ni? request.

The way to avoid getting searches for bugs which are a good idea but
need someone to work on them, is to have a Future milestone or similar.
Marking the bug as RESOLVED with some resolution is just going to mean
people don't find it.
