I like the idea.  Some comments:

 - It could be useful not to archive done/wontfix bugs, to allow other
   people to contribute ideas or motivations in the future: since the
   wish has been refused but not satisfied, it seems appropriate to keep
   the discussion open.
 - There is a need for documenting this behaviour, should it be
   accepted, and probably for documenting (and maybe discussing?) other
   currently undocumented established practices that have popped up in
   these threads.
 - It could be useful to implement a view of the wishlist bugs including
   done/wontfix bugs, to explore the contributed creativity that has not
   made its way into the package.
