It should be done for components that have been deprecated and are not shipping any longer, like kmilo or kicker (critical, grave and major might be an exception, so they can be fixed in a KDE3.5.x bugfix release).
But a general amnesty is not a good idea. Many KDE4 applications are based on KDE3 code, and several bugs will still apply.

However this discussion will end, please exclude product "kmix" from any automated close. I'm regulary cleaning the bugs myself (including "pinging" the bug repoter). Everything that is now in the Bugzilla for KMix is a valid report: It either needs to be verified in KDE4, implemented, or there are other very good reasons to keep the reports open.
