Well, the nmu tag would not provide the same information.  If many bugs
remain "fixed by NMU" but unacknowledged, then the maintainer isn't paying
attention.  But if a bug is closed with an "nmu" tag, then even if the
maintainer promptly verifies and includes the NMU patch, the bugreport
will remain in the same state.
