So the name's the thing, and moving the contents of queue/accepted to a
directory not under queue would address the problem?

Given that http://incoming.debian.org/ is quite publically accessible
(though not documented anywhere -- but really, how much of Debian was
ever documented), I think it substantially meets the requirements of
package availability, and it should be acceptable to close the bug
report as soon as the packages are available /somewhere/ -- AS LONG AS
we give our bug submitters something to hold onto that will help them
get to the packages in question.  It seems relevant to me that "in the
archive" does not always mean the bug submitter can immediately retrieve
the package using his or her existing apt configuration; if we tell bug
submitters what they can do to get the package before it reaches their
mirror, I don't see a problem.
