That would be nice, but the current version of Trac doesn't support  
this; custom workflows will be available in .11, which I'm hoping will  
be final and on the IETF tools site soon.

Also, while doing it in Trac is convenient for me and the editors, it  
doesn't really improve visibility for the rest of the WG. It's  
important that discussion and decisions be made on the list, not in  
the tools.

So, I'm going to try doing the following:
   1) linking the issues that are being considered for closure on our  
wiki page <http://www3.tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/wiki/WikiStart>,  
   2) recording *mature* proposals in the issues list, and
   3) highlighting potential closures to design issues with a distinct  
Subject line, and
   4) sending a weekly status e-mail to the list.

Feedback as to whether any of these help, as well as additional  
suggestions, welcome.
