I understand why you want to clear your QA page. However,
http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Developer does say
"Debian bug reports should be closed when the problem is
fixed. Problems in packages can only be considered fixed once a
package that includes the bug fix enters the Debian archive."
Couldn't you just mark the bug report as "forwarded" and then ignore
forwarded bugs in your own bug listing?
