I disagree. How can it be vandalism if it's not there anymore?

For those who want to keep historic records (& I think there should be),
they should take a record of current data at regular intervals & keep it
in a separate database.
If historic data was kept within OSM it would become far to cluttered.
Why do you think it should remain in the OSM database?
To me data is data, irrelevant of how it was added. Only current data
should be within the OSM database.
