Actually, I think it is. I usually see REMIND used for "cannot 
reproduce, need more information" when the reporter hasn't replied for 
some time. In other words, it's like "WORKSFORME" (in the "can't 
reproduce" sense) with the added notation that the reporter should take 
some action (usually re-open, though in this case it would be "close 
conclusively") if further information becomes available.
