The bug seems to be that the removal of a closed bug from the blockers
list takes several hours

That's not been my experience. There is never a several-hour wait. If I close the blocking bug B via email, and wait a minute or two and verify that it's closed by visiting its bug page and forcing a refresh, and then visit <http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=19759>, what I observe is that Bug#19759 still lists B as blocking (due to the debbugs bug). If I refresh the Bug#19759 page in the routine way it will continue to list B as blocking. If I do a full refresh (by shift-left-mouse-click) then the Bug#19759 page will no longer list B as blocking; this is always immediate, assuming B has been closed already.

adding a
bug to the list (if it becomes open again) takes just a few moments.

Sure, but it's easy to forget to add B as a blocker, and indeed the person reopening B may not even know that B was a blocker and should become a blocker again. In contrast, simply closing B in the first place will mean that reopening B later will do the right thing without further thought.
