I think the ideal is that a task has finite work and
is eventually closed.
Yes, this is the reason some dislike the tracking tasks; not a problem
if you create reports for, say, 12 different classes of actionable
search problems and add a handful blockers for each.
(A contributing factor was that Phabricator's support for dependencies
between tasks is awful: hard to add, no flexibility in notifications, no
charts, no searchability. Tracking tasks were very powerful in bugzilla,
not so much in Phabricator.)
