To the bug tracker, `notabug' is just an arbitrary tag.  It has no
direct relation to being closed or open.  For me, if I see the `notabug'
tag next to the "Inappropriate use of curly quotes in `info.el'" then
it's easier to remember that the current response is essentially "the
use of curly quotes is not inappropriate".  And if the bug is closed
later, then the `notabug' tag will remind that it's because we decided
use of curly quotes is okay, not that we removed said quotes.

In other words, I consider closing to have a connotation of finality
(even though it can also be reversed), so just tagging with `notabug'
without closing indicates a somewhat more tentative state.

If you rephrase your suggestion as a patch, then we won't have to play
guessing games.
