My perspective is that leaving the bug open is not necessary: normative
references get assessed at transition requests (to Candidate
Recommendation, Proposed Recommendation and Recommendation status) by the
Director; should you find that a normative reference is fishy at the time
the group resolves to move to one of these status, then would be the right
time to oppose progress.

Leaving the bug open is a detriment, since it creates noise on the list of
things we need to do before we can declare we've done the work we've been

My personal preference would thus to not open bugs on the status of
normative references.
