Why do we keep buildings and roads in the OSM database, that were demolished years ago? They are still there, versions 1 and 2, deleted by an active mapper. Why do we keep mailing lists archives from 2004? To argue with points made by people that left the project a decade ago?
You haven’t even looked at the archived version of that page. The latest revision clearly shows that the testing has ended. That is more than enough: no need to delete it so that nobody except a wiki admin could read it.
