But that's exactly what "wontfix" is for -- an opinionated choice to
not do something about a bug which could potentially be changed/fixed
(unlike "invalid", which rather means "it's not a bug in the first
place" or "it's impossible to fix").

"opinion" does not connote being a terminal state, and is fairly
confusing as a bug state IMHO.
