Sometimes tags are withdrawn before a vote is called; I think it's OK
to delete those, but it's best not to re-use the name.
So the first vote might be called on RC3 ...

For tags that have been used in a vote, we should certainly keep them
until the end of the vote as it makes diffing easier.

However I'm not sure that it is necessary to keep superseded tags once
the vote is complete.
As long as the tag URL and revision are in the vote e-mail, the
contents of such tags can still be reconstructed.
So I would be OK with removing such tags *after* the vote.
