Why do you want to close such bug in the first place?
IMHO it is Ok to put the bug in the RESOLVED state and
wait some time if the original reporter provides
feedback or more information will become available.
Keeping the bug in RESOLVED state will insure that
somebody will look at the bug one more time.

Is this too many steps?
