Yes, this is what we do. In fact, not only is it documented at https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Bug_triaging#Ask_for_any_missing_information, but Bugzilla actually makes it mandatory: you're not allowed to change a bug to NEEDSINFO without a comment.
+1, in favor, especially if we can close them in an automated fashion. Closing bugs isn't as frustrating for filers as it used to be anyway, since if they ever show up again with new information, they can just re-open them.
