1) Nobody was talking about NMU's before you mention them now
2) This is contradicted by the information you yourself gave me
3) You still didn't supply any reasonable indication that your original
   statement is true. You only claimed it again, just naming a package
   doesn't change that.

I don't think continuing this thread has much use, I won't be replying
unless there really is something new. I originally only replied to you
because I think it'd be bad if people would close bugs just because they
read somewhere on a mailinglist that it'd other negatively impact their
NM process.

Note the 'just because', of course, closing bugs with good reason is
never bad, this reason is just not a good one.
