"By Design" ... How does it apply to "Inquiry"

The software allows bugs to marked by category and status.  How does the status "Resolved - By Design" apply to the category "Inquiry"?

It seems in the Inquiry case, to be truly resolved it would not be left as "by design", but should be marked as "responded".

Useful for timid testers who use the category "Inquiry" to report what they're not sure is a bug.

E.g.
New Case -> Inquiry -> "Is the splash screen really supposed to contain a picture of a cow?"

Resolved->By design

I see.  I was thinking of "Inquiry" as coming from end users and not testers.  Now I understand.
