Is there otherwise a visible history of the status changes, though?
Nice behaviour IMO would be if it auto-generated a "Marked as RESOLVED
FIXED by Some Dev." comment if the status changed but the comment was
empty, but if you couldn't follow status changes because no comment was
generated, that'd be worse than the current situation, which after I
thought about it for a bit is why I asked what I should say instead of
why I have to write something. :)
