I think that would be solving a social problem using technical means.
If you check Red Hat's Bugzilla you'll see that it's possible to enter a
bug e.g. for Fedora Core 1.

Some bugs can be more long-lived than you may think.  I believe the
quality of the bug report should be judged not only by the version.
Bugs against old versions should be discouraged, but not outright

Besides, there is only one bug filed for "older than 4.5.55".

"None" is hardcoded, "All versions" is not.  I think "all version" is a
valid value in some cases.
