At the moment you cannot delete targets.

Once a target exists, it accumulates historic data (audit log, versions that are deployed
to it). ACE keeps a full history of everything that ever happened, so you cannot currently
delete a target.

Now obviously we can discuss this, as there might be use cases where you simply do not care
about a target (and its history?) anymore, but as the current REST API reflects the client
API, delete does not work.
