I can close my own question by myself, but not reopen it
I was surprised to find that ordinary user privileges allow me to close my own posts unilaterally. It does seem useful; just now I posted something on Linux Systems and realized it needed some fixes to be answerable, and thought that I might not be able to get to it for a while, so I opted to use this option.
It turned out that fixing the issues was not as hard as I feared, and I ended up plowing right into it. But then I was more surprised to find that the "Vote on Holds" ability is needed to reopen the post - and, presumably, even then I would only be casting a vote for it.
Of course, people shouldn't be able to reopen their question if others closed it, since that defeats the purpose of closure. But if I'm allowed to close my own post unilaterally - if that's intended to be a meaningful operation - surely I should have an undo for that?
