Being able to tell bug reporters “please check what happens with the X
stack in experimental” (which had more or less latest upstream release
candidates or releases), and closing with those versions; or
forwarding upstream if bugs are still there, is something I find very
interesting indeed.

And last I checked, upstreams were happy not to receive a massive flow
of bug reports for already-fixed bugs, so that they could concentrate
on current issues.
