 Works for me. Closing as such.

 410 still seems reasonable for never-opening-again (ie. closed for
 6+months), and although I don't think search engines would kill indexing
 forever, by that point they'll have already ceased showing it in results
 through the noindex, so changing the status makes little difference here.
