Could someone explain a "Won't Fix" bug resolution re ubuntu-boot-experience?

Hi all,

If someone feels so inclined I would be happy if I could get an
explanation about a bug resolution, to improve my understanding of what
to expect from the new Karmic boot process. Thanks in advance.

In response to the karmic beta announcement [1] which asked for bugs to
be filed regarding the boot experience I filed bug 443282 [2].

The beta announcement read:

"Boot Experience
We've done some work on improving the overall look and feel of booting
the system. Please open bugs with the tag "ubuntu-boot-experience" on
any messages you see flashed after grub loads and before the new Ubuntu
Splash screen (xsplash) displays."

My boot experience is documented in the bug report (with video). In
short, I see lots of console text messages followed late in the boot by
what I guess is xsplash (?). Yet the bug report was closed as "Won't
Fix" with the comment, "The text is normal".

I just don't get it, I guess

Kind regards
