OK. I'm going to move them to won't fix; add 'Migrated' keyword and add the comment Remy suggested. So if someone feels that its an important bug to him, let him reopen/file a new one. I'll triage it over. Hope its fine with everyone

I am with Krzysztof on this one. I would also suggest that the comment says something like "If this bug is still important to you and relevant to the current Eclipse development stream, please state your reasonings and reopen this bug." or something like that. This could help the triaging speed a little bit because bugs that people care about would be reopened->triaged quickly whereas the less important ones (this is open to interpretation of course, I should say, the ones that people do not seem to care about anymore/as much) will be taken care of over time via the keyword triaging method.
We should also keep in mind that some of these will be reopened against former committers (Tod, Karice, Kim, Nick, MVM, Doug, etc etc).
