Then use the (default) unstable view of the BTS, where they will be
listed as closed bugs only?  The question is whether the bugs should be
*archived*, not whether they should be displayed by default as open.

Though anyway, my whole point in suggesting that these bugs not be
archived is that they're the ones that Joey's policy does appear to
allow maintainers to do something about.
