I'm glad that a new status has your support, but I'm not so sure about the
name.  It is a difficult idea to express in a very short status, to be
certain, but I fear that most casual users will interpret "Won't Fix Here"
as "Won't Fix", which is not the right idea.

How about something like "Passed" or "Forwarded"?
