Yup, I agree totally. Its not helpful to have loads of no-hoper bugs
floating around. They should be closed with resolved->wontfix. My
suggestion is only around the comment and criteria to use when closing
them. e.g. here's our fedora-16 one

So taking the fedora comment and adjusting it for us, it would look

LibreOffice ''(major-version}'' changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on
''(date here)''. LibreOffice ''(major-version}'' is no longer
maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or
bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
LibreOffice please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

so for us that would mean anything reported against 3.3.X and 3.4.X is
up for mass-closing with the above.
