No, I would not characterize the QA process that way.  Setting NEW has
nothing to do with determining if something can or should be fixed.  Rather,
it depends on the comfort of the QA volunteer in making an assignment, or
asking for more information.

If issue as reported can be reproduced it can be set status NEW--or as Andy
has done--leave it UNCONFIRMED and invite other QA or Devs to review.  
There will be issues that clearly are incorrect function, as this is.  And
there are issues that are marginal, and are better classified as Enhancement
to the existing function.
