...would only happen if all request for enhancements were omitted from the bug query, all work to performance was stopped, etc. For example, there's (a few) meta bugs about DHTML performance. No matter how fast DHTML gets, people will still want it faster; Therefore, the bug(s) won't ever be closed.

Mozilla's code is freely available and many developers work on it in their spare time for fun or to scratch an itch. Do you really think it's likely that you'll get such a diverse group of developers to simply stop what they are working on when they aren't getting paid for it?
