Well, apparantly this isn't entirely true, or at least, opinions differ.
Steve Langasek stated last night that "it was discussed that bugs fixed
in NMUs should be version-closed *and* tagged fixed".
Implementing this would un-obsolete a), for b) there still is no use
inside Debian (as version-tracking is a superior way of dealing with
bugs in terms of which suite they apply to).
Personally, I'm not sure, this use of 'fixed' would conflict with the
original (pre-NMU?) sematic of it being "The bug seems to have been
somehow resolved, but I'm not sure/it's not confirmed, so leaving it
open & tagged fixed instead of closing it".
I think the bugs people should make a clear choice here, including
making the display on bugs.debian.org consistent, and that the rest of
the infrastructure should follow then.
 Technically it wouldn't because the one is "fixed + closed" and the
other "fixed + open", but this is confusing at best
