There are two aspects to this

- is object deletion an operation that we consider trivial and not 
worthy of protection. Wrong mailing list for that discussion, but if the 
answer is "no" (unlikely IMHO) we would actually have to undo the deletions

- we will want to keep a list (a map) of such objects for potential 
replacement of objects that were replaced by "non-agreers" (non-agreer 
deletes a object and creates a new object in its place)
