Why?  Obviously it needs to be clear that nothing further should be
expected from the maintainer unless/until the version is bumped.  But
the project can choose to indicate that by closing the bugs as WONTFIX
or some other way, e.g., another resolution or by customizing Bugzilla
to show a notice on bugs that are open against an EOL version of Fedora.
Personally, I dislike the use of WONTFIX because philosophically I think
it doesn't fit, and practically it makes zapped bugs impossible to
distinguish from real WONTFIX bugs in searches
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=528319).
