If you suspect that a bug has been fixed or is now invalid, then ask
that question in the bug.
But I agree that "later" really ought not to be a resolution (because
really a bug marked LATER has not been resolved), but rather a status or
prioritization. When I do searches across all the open bugs, I do not
habitually say "and also ones that are Resolved but only if they've been
marked Resolved--Later". And probably most people are making the same
Mark H., what do you think? Also, is there a way to make Bugzilla's
default search include resolved bugs with the Later resolution?
