This depends on the state change *to* NEEDSINFO having a comment or other 
message that is sufficiently directive: "we need <x information> in order to do 
anything with this bug". Or, in general, we'd need to keep in mind that that 
state change needs to have a clear and explicit question towards the reporter.

In my own projects I do tend to to an intent-to-close pass over bugs, adding a 
comment "this will be closed in a week unless you speak up and provide the 
requested information."
