[lsb-discuss] LSB bug processing (policy) question

On another project there's just been a bit of a debate on how
to handle bugs that are initially targeted for a certain release,
then don't make it and are moved out.

It was proposed that such bugs be cloned with the new bug
marked as targeted to the next release and the old bug
closed as WONTFIX.

This drew howls of protest from some; the argument in favor
was that this way, better statistics could be generated for
a particular release: you could then track how many bugs
had been originally tagged, then not fixed due to lack of
resources or whatever, if you just move them out you can't
get visibility into that aspect.

Without tossing in my own opinion, what do people think
of this as an approach for LSB?
