Well, "closure" is handled very differently.

The "proposal for closure" for Klingon led to its complete removal. The 
"proposal for closure" for Low Saxon Wikiquote I once started (my 
intention was removal of the project) ended with locking of the database 
Going back to the Incubator is yet another example of a possible outcome 
of a "proposal for closure".
There should be some clarity what exactly is meant by "closure", and 
which form of closure will be chosen under which circumstances.
