[maemo-developers] extras-testing and WONTFIX ?

I've been thinking through some extras-testing scenarios... What happens if an 
issue is marked as a blocker, but the developer says it's a WONTFIX, fixed in 
Harmattan or similar ? If we play by the book, the app is stuck in testing and 
everybody looses - users won't get a potentially interesting app, the 
developer doesn't get karma/fame/device/whatever... so not good no matter how 
you put it. Obviously, if it's really a QA blocker, we don't want to expose 
users to it. On the other hand, we can't (and shouldn't) push developers doing 
what they think is not right. So... any takes what the (general) right course 
of action would be for such stuck applications (apart from the obvious lose-
lose scenario) ?
