If the purpose is to make remapping easier, I think it is disrespectful of data consumers.   Data consumers are aware of the 1 April date, after which time anything goes as far as removing non-ODBL data.   They can prepare for 1 April by stopping real time updates, however this removal may have taken them by surprise.


It would be nice to archive the last or second to last planet of this month and not have giant chunks of data missing or broken.
