1) Typically, I only keep an issue at resolved (as opposed to closed) in 
order to indicate I am still considering further backports (iff I filed 
the issue myself).
2) For bugs reported by others, I do leave them resolved for the other 
party to close when issue is deemed solved: I don't ask for it to be 
closed until I'm done considering backports. (Note: that doesn't mean my 
issue couldn't be backported further, just that I don't have an 
inclination to do it.. ;-)

For the first case, I guess a final comment on backports (and/or current 
flag blocking further backports) would suffice.

For the second case, not sure.. I think it does have some value vs 
users. It seems the root cause here is that the closed state forbids 
editing. I guess we won't be able to lift this across all projects, even 
if technically feasible in JIRA.

Hmm.. it gets messy. Could we build a tool to wrap the operations we 
want to perform in reopen-op-close? ;-)
