First, afaik automatic-expiration is not enabled for Ubuntu.  It tracks
when bugs will expire but doesn't close them without human action.

Second, even if automatic-expiration were enabled, IIRC it is configured
to distinguish between ones that have received a reply vs. those that
don't.

So... I think this isn't a problem.  If you could show a (recent)
example where something in Ubuntu got expired this way, that'd be worth
knowing about.
