Long-term intermittents investigation

Earlier study of intermittent failure counts found that frequent intermittents (bugs that fail more than N times in the last few days or weeks) account for a large percentage of the total intermittent count. With measures in place to counter those, what can be done about the remainder? In this bug, let's have a look at intermittent bugs that have remained open for a more than, let's say, 60 days but have not failed frequently enough to trigger disable-recommended or needswork. How important are such bugs to the overall failure count? Can we expand the needswork/disable-recommended handling to such bugs?
