For packages that we did never upload (ie. packages that > were never finished), I see no problem in removing it completely. I am for moving branches and tags (in addition to trunk) to attic/. We don't hide history, we just put it aside not to interfere with the present. Admittedly, this adds a bit of complexity and non-trivialness when preparing a stable upload, but the alternative is to have stale tags and branches in the "main" part of the repository practicaly forever.
