Isn't this a discussion coming up every 6 months or so? From the last  
time I believe to remember people consider closing bug reports more  
important than fixing bugs. Hence the attitude to mark bugs as  
invalid if they don't receive additional work by the bug reporter for  
some weeks or months.

To me, distributions with few bugs are suspicious. Having a well  
filled bug database is at least honest. Especially if I run into  
issues with the software on an almost daily basis. Ubuntu is of great  
design, it gets more work done, but I could use all day fixing things  
as well.

So yes, please stop this marking-as-invalid-mania.
