That would be nice, actually, an automatic mechanism that would mail the l10n
mailings everytime a batch of pages are removed could prompt translation
teams into action.

No, there's none specific for the web page.

Having an automatic tool would certainly speed up the time into getting this

Yes, why not. It would not be able to be hosted at www.debian.org, but we
could point people to an application at say, submissions.debian.net or
submit.debian.org, which would be a standalone server (no mirrors) and take
where dynamic applications could be hosted.
