Given that provenance is so important for the ASF, would Infra support
a move that did not preserve history?

Note also that removal of branches and tags etc from an SVN repo does
NOT remove the history (or indeed the files) from the repo.
So even if the SVN history were required, it could still be recovered.
And this will be trivial to do given provided that we keep the
top-level directory.
