Well I can think of searching for all tasks with a given keyword and
then wanting an overview of what is already done vs what is still to
do. Having both open and closed tasks in one view can give such
overview.

In the latest version we differentiate between "open" and "actionable"
and there is a checkbox in the dialog to toggle between the two.

No, checkboxes can only have two states. If you need 3 or more states
it needs to be either a dropdown or a set of radio boxes. Since radio
boxes would take to much space in this interface I can only implement
it with a dropdown selection box ("combobox").
