Only if the issue is closed, so that it actually means 'fixed'.
Otherwise, just delete it.

The following data suggests to me that 'accepted' is a de facto synonym for 'fixed' and therefore useless and might as well be removed.
N     Issue category
3290  fixed
    68  open
  3219  closed
     354  feature request (and closed)
     302  behavior
     126  other type
    2437  type not specified
       346  documentation component (and type not specified)
       679  library component

The type field has been, at least in the past, greatly underused. But of the last 679, only 27 were in the last 3 years.
