There is no way you can say to a volutantary worker "I demand to be
served for free!" Ofcourse, technically closing upstream bugs is wrong.
But it is just as wrong to only reopen them. 

You should have send them to the kde upstream Bug Tracking System 
and mark them "forwarded to upstream" in debian BTS. Since you appear
to be unwilling to help debian project even that small way, 
I've promised Chris to read through the bug list in weekend, and submit
and mark upstream bugs to kde BTS.

This is ludicrous. There is no advantage to anyone if obvious
upstream issues pass through debian BTS. Packaging bugs
to debian BTS, upstream bugs to upstream BTS. If unsure, 
to debian BTS.
