FWIW I agree. But as far as I can tell, it's how Mozilla people handle
their bugs.

And unfortunately making different states than what comes as default is
a pain. Hopefully it's something that will change in Bugzilla 3, but
that's a project far far into the future.

I think we'd probably be better of setting the milestone of such bugs to
'future' and tell developers to set their default search to only include
bugs with milestones: ---, 1.0, and 1.2. That way, bugs we are not
planning to fix in the near term do not clutter the search results -
which is, I believe, the reason for CLOSE/LATER'ing such bugs.
