    But not "It is henceforth closed"?

    I believe "henceforth" is closer to "dorénavant", in that it's higher in linguistic register.

    I have asked before for people to explain when they have used the term "linguistic register" since I had no idea what is. I had received no replies to date.

    For myself and others, I looked up a definition: " "Linguistic register” refers to the concept of adapting one’s use of language to conform to standards or traditions in a given professional or social situation". All it means is adapt your language to the situation in which you find yourself.

    So, lemmingofdestiny is saying "henceforth" is a word typically used in a professional or technical communication rather than in casual conversation.
