Upon looking at the Timeline CSS, I noticed an interesting class:

.post-timeline-v2 .post-timeline .event-type>span.closure {
    background-color: #9D81B3;
    color: #fafafb

I've never seen the Closure reason actually used, especially for, well, the seemingly obvious question closure. Instead, this is listed under the history event:

timeline history event

It's also not used for close votes, so what possible purpose does it have? Will it have a purpose?

It's used to style close (and reopen) votes in the moderator version of the timeline.
