I didn't say the field does not matter. I said adjusting it doesn't
advance the issue. Anybody *really* working on the issue might choose
to update it, or might choose to leave it incorrect when the issue is
going to be closed, anyway. I do believe that much of the information on
closed issues is irrelevant - yet I would oppose to deleting them
entirely from the database.
