        I believe that severity was made orthogonal to the (open,
        closed, archived) status (and to the tags) on purpose.

        I wish to follow the bugs that are /extant/, per the semantics
        I’ve given earlier.  Such bugs may happen to be of any severity
        and may bear any tags; and per the semantics you suggest, they
        may also be open, closed, or archived.  That is: there’s no way
        to /omit/ the feature requests that were actually implemented
        (or became otherwise irrelevant) – and /show/ all the rest.

        The data to discern the two are simply not there.
