Is cleaning up old issues worthwhile?

Okay, I've added a new "obsolete" label:  "Old issues that no longer 
apply and are in a short waiting period before closing."  I'll start 
going through the low-hanging fruit adding comments and sticking this 
label on them, with the idea of going back and closing them after, say, 
4 weeks with no complaints.  After I've gone through a few of these and 
gained some experience with it, I'll try to draft some guidelines for 
handling old tickets.

Anyway, please let me know if this process starts to get irritating.
