In order for that argument to fly, you'd need to add an additional
changelog entry that said something like:

  * Bug fixes in upstream release (closes: #xxx ...)

since I read any bug closed after the "New upstream release" as requests
for the new release.

Still, I don't think a single changelog entry should ever close multiple
bugs unless the bugs all pertain to the same issue for other reasons
that what the bug submitter sees.
