not really: makes it a lot more difficult to work out what the release
was actually cut from

i'm unhappy about tags being deleted and i don't really think it's
necessary with subversion. 

why not separate releases from release candidates?

for example:

commons-whatever ----- trunk
                                  - branches
                                  - tags
                                  - candidates
                                  - releases
