Please correct me, but I suspect that when you mean "we have to close
invalid bugs", I think you actually mean "we need to filter out those
incomplete bugs which we don't have the ressources for investiagting
further from 'our' 'default' bug listings". (YMMV of course what is
"your default" bug listing.

I think tags could help you here, right?

I agree that you that handling packages with tons of bugs is a real
pain. Perhaps the launchpad artists have ideas how to solve this in an
elegant fashion?
