So add an easy checkbox (perhaps even checked by default) to all search 
interfaces to limit the results to bugs which have seen any activity during 
the past X weeks (or since January 2008, if you prefer).

That's essentially what you are looking for, in asking to close all old bugs. 
And yes, that sounds like a good heuristic to find out which bugs actually 
need attention.

Well, it's the job of the database to filter information according to rules 
like this. Managing information by deleting it or changing it in misleading 
ways is exactly the sort of approach that a database should obsolete.
