In which case should you be deleting them? I would say no. While they
are in that directory, they are not used by spip and thus not really a
part of spip. The user(s) put them there, when in doubt, leave them

Yes, symlinks are needed for direct file access (unless you patch the
source). Sorry, when I stated symlinks weren't needed I meant on the
Apache side. I've dealt with this exact problem in my packaging of
Media Mate (new name for Movie Mate). I'm currently using symlinks to
allow the php script to access files by the paths they expect and Apache
Alias directives to allow http requests to get the files without
enabling symlink following.

I'll forward Media Mate's packaging over to you.
