I don't know; anybody can contribute at any time with new information. If we lock all the dead threads than people will just create new threads for new information about the same subject. In addition I see forums as a source of information so to detract attention from past threads information would be a shame.
Just my 2 cents.
If anything, I would not mind if the sections were reduced. It seems to me like there are too many to choose from.
