The problem here is that an open ITP sends the message that someone is
actively working on the package, which might prevent someone else (more
active) to work on the package instead. Except in some rare cases, I
don't think that it should take more than 3 months to get a package into
Debian. So retitling ITPs to RFPs after 3 or 6 months is probably
As for keeping RFPs open vs closing them, I don't really care. RFPs are
pretty useless anyway.
