I disagree with this: bugs should always be merged instead of closed
if they're duplicate, so that e.g. all the submitters get the "fixed
in version x.y" mail.
As for the "special" wnpp, while there's no much point, I'll admit, in
merging ITPs, my rationale above perfectly applies to RFPs. I mention
because I've seen you unmerge & close wnpp bugs several times already,
and I really believe this should not happen for RFPs.

Every program has at least one bug and can be shortened by at least one
instruction -- from which, by induction, one can deduce that every
program can be reduced to one instruction which doesn't work.
