I'm surprised the new names have already been deployed on bugzilla.

We are talking about a pretty big change in our workflow and I think we 
didn't discuss it enough. Also, many developers are not on this list and we 
should have contacted at least kde-devel first.

For example, I don't understand how am I supposed to close wishlists now. 
Resolved-Wontix made sense to me, Resolved-Later or Resolved-Intentional do 
not, imho.
