Reopening them is pointless, because most of them are so old that 
ie6setup does not fail in that way anymore. So they would be resolved as 
fixed until we're left with just one - "IE6 fails to install with the 
current release".

Metabugs are generally a bad idea because they are very hard to 
maintain. What is the point of "Get games working perfectly", and how 
can it ever be resolved?
