Auto-Locking Threads

I wonder if it would be possible, and if so beneficial, for threads to auto-lock after a period with no posts? A fairly long period, 2 years, maybe 1 year, maybe 3?

I figure it might keep long dead, no longer useful threads from being resurrected. If someone has something current they can start a new thread wherein they may get some participation. If they don't have anything worth creating a new thread, well, it's probably not worth resurrecting a 2 or 3 or 8 year old thread either.
