On a child meta, when a user has the privilege to vote to close/reopen but not edit freely, they still have the option to "Edit and reopen", change whatever on the "edit question" page, and then be blocked from actually submitting the edit. There really shouldn't be an inaccessible option like this.

please select one… leave closed, edit and reopen, reopen

This happens most often with "beta" privilege levels, since voting to reopen is 500 rep and editing is 1k, but it can also with similar custom rep levels. (I was on Webapps, with 500 rep to vote to reopen and 2k for editing.)
