"bags" for begs the question

Continuing from bakes the questions, bagging the question would be something like shooting the question down on the wing.

AP article
Which bags the question: Which star will become the next North Star?

Programming blog
Nat­u­rally, this bags the ques­tion of why the com­piler doesn’t enforce the imple­men­ta­tion

Gamer board
the fact Street Fighter is doing two crossovers with Tekken it bags the question when we will see it happen.

Bag to differ is also out there, but for that I would not feel comfortable bagging your indulgence.

I also have the strange impression that most of the people that criticize a P&S camera for not having raw are just using a kind of snob wording to look smart and knowledgeable, but I bag your indulgence for my words.
