I'll just add my two cents to Beetle B.'s comment.  People who use a terminal
emulator enough to care about the fonts are probably not going to care if they
have to edit some config files to get the appearance they want.  In other
words, you don't have to make this option accessible through the GUI if that's
too much work.  Simply having Konsole respect the "Bold=false" in the
colorscheme files would be adequate to close this bug.

That shouldn't happen.  It used to be the case in KDE 3 that the 'boldness' of
a character depended only on its color but not any more.  By default we now
just use the font weight requested by the terminal application.  The converse
is true though - if the application asks for a bold font then it will be drawn
with a bright version of the color.  The logic at the moment is:

.colorscheme Color Entry | Font Style Requested By App | Visual Result

1. Bold=false | Non-Bold | Non-Bold
2. Bold=false | Bold     | Bold
3. Bold=true  | Non-Bold | Bold
4. Bold=true  | Bold     | Bold

The bug is that the .colorscheme entry file should be a tri-state option
(Bold=True, Bold=False, Bold=UseCurrentFormat (ie. use the font style requested
by the terminal application)) at the moment if the terminal application asks
for bold it will always get bold.
