So, the "wontfix" tag is inapplicable to wishlist bugs by definition?

There's nothing inherently wrong with that AFACIS, but I don't think
it's obvious.  It should be better documented on the BTS webpages[1].

    This bug won't be fixed. Possibly because this is a choice between
    two arbitrary ways of doing things and the maintainer and submitter
    prefer different ways of doing things, possibly because changing the
    behaviour will cause other, worse, problems for others, or possibly
    for other reasons.

Nothing in the above implies any restriction of scope to particular bug
