For short periods I don't bother and for long periods I remove them.
I've used end_date=2013 and then removed things when I see that they
are really gone. Removing things is not such a good idea when you have
people downloading offline data and use data that is 6 months to a
year of of date, and as Martin metions it also requires someone adding
it again.

Time related stuff is hard, this is similar to the question about how
to manage and warn routing applications when you know the road will be
shutoff at 6pm on 2015-01-27.
