Even if a certain page loses its fertility, it nonetheless still acts as a passage to links and other links that developed from it. In this sense, deleting a page is like slicing through a rhizome; in doing so you are likely cutting off fertile or even flourishing outgrowths.
Perhaps large deletions should be first approached by selecting the text in the 'edit' window and choosing to 'strike through' the text, or cross it out while it is still visible. This would leave the edition more open to co-elaboration, and suspend a little bit of history.
