Why was this question closed: Who should the beta moderators be?? It is a perfectly valid question. Indeed, it was important for selecting the beta moderators. Why isn't it simply tagged with ?

Closing a question suggests that it was off-topic, poorly phrased and never fixed, unwelcome, etc, whereas would more accurately reflect the status of the question.

That's what's usually done with these threads on meta sites that have a limited lifetime: close them, since there's no point in answering them any more, but leave them around because they reflect a point in the site's history. The close reason is “too localized”: it's not a bad question per se, but it is no longer relevant.
