I am opposed to keeping issues without concrete proposals open 
indefinitely on the basis of the existence of what you (properly, IMHO) 
refer to as a perma-thread.

simply close the issue without prejudice.  If we get to the point where 
somebody actually puts together a coherent and actionable proposal, we 
can discuss it at that time.
