As far as KAlarm is concerned, most of the bugs and wishes outstanding for
KDE 3 probably still exist in KDE 4, so it wouldn't make sense to close
them automatically. Also, KDE 3 will still be very much used until at
least KDE 4.1 comes out, so until at least then it would be a bit of a
slap in the face for most users if KDE 3 bugs which they know still exist
were closed en masse.
