I disagree. Resolved LATER is useful to some maintainers that want to
fix that bug, but don't have time or don't find the issue to be a
priority at the moment. By marking it LATER they're acknowledging the
bug exists and needs to be taken care of.

You've chosen a terrible example as in that case the resolution is
accurate. The forums team didn't find that issue to be a priority and
doesn't have the time to deal with it. As the bug was open for years
without any progress, we chose to close it as LATER. If someone else
wants to step up and take care of it, great.

When you mark something as LATER because you don't have the time nor
find it a priority, you're not "hidding a problem". If someone uses that
resolution to hide problems, that person should be warned of the above.
