I didn't close the bug, mind you.  I just removed it from the list of
those blocking the impending release.  You, or anyone else, are free
to work on fixing it and/or discuss the various approaches to dealing
with this issue.

I doubt that anyone could give you such a promise without seeing the
proposed changes.  Especially since this and related issues, and
solutions proposed for them, already have some history of being
controversial.

That I can promise you.  Feature freeze doesn't affect bugfixes, and
Emacs 26.1 is not going to be released tomorrow or the next week.
