I believe if you delete all documents in a segment, that segment as a
whole goes away.

A segment is created on every commit whether you reopen the searcher
or not. Do you know what documents would be deleted later (are there
are natural clusters). If yes, perhaps there is a way to index them so
that most of deleted documents would end up taking the whole segment
on disk.

A bit of a long shot, not sure if it is useful.
