That sounds like a good idea for bugs of reasonable recentness. I'm
going through old bugs that are years old now. To me, it feels a bit
awkward to suddenly ask people to confirm anything after years have
passed - just closing seems like a more reasonable approach to me. But
I'll follow your advice for bugs in the last year. If you feel strongly
that time elapsed shouldn't matter, though, I'm happy to do it your way
all the time.

Also, I'm assuming that the bug can always be re-opened if necessary.
Maybe that isn't the case.
