It says very effectively (I thought) to the censorious: "We have given
your position a great deal of due careful consideration, and urge you
to go away. The issue is dead." Of course, I could just be projecting
my own feelings onto it. In which case, it's even better.

It should be thought of, IMO, as being primarily for external consumption.
