No, but the maintainer can choose to close the bug instead.  I've
tagged wishlist bugs wontfix because else a month or two will pass and I'll
get another bug report about the same issue.  Tagging such wishlist
requests wontfix is sane (IMHO).

This is at least how I've come to understand it.. I might have gotten
something wrong somewhere along the road, though.
