I'm good either way, I think both side are valid.

Confirmed = reproduced. We should stick with the normal definition
of triaged which is setting priorities for patients (bugs). This will
most likely involve digging into the bug to know what's actually wrong,
how you might go about fixing it, and possibility assigning someone
who would be best for the job.

I don't think I've ever used opinion, I just use "Won't fix". Perhaps
the difference is one removes it from the default list and one
does not?
