Bug#491839: developers-reference: should document what, if any, version to close bugs with on removal

Package: developers-reference
Severity: minor

At the end of 5.9.2 (Removing packages), the developers reference

  Once the package has been removed, the package's bugs should be
  handled. They should either be reassigned to another package in the
  case where the actual code has evolved into another package
  (e.g. libfoo12 was removed because libfoo13 supersedes it) or closed
  if the software is simply no longer part of Debian.

It would be useful if it was explicit about what, if any, version
number should be used.
