Okay. Thanks for clarification.

Not against using a map to do that, my suggestion is to merge them into
a single map carrying an enum value (none/closed/open) instead of two
each being a bool.
There should be (almost) no difference in comparing to true/false than
comparing to a small integer value.
Just an idea.
