Deleting Versions means actually deleting these history states.
Its no more than an administrative task, which in some cases may be very 
useful, eg. to maintain the repository as small as possible, or to keep 
only important versions (up to the app, of course).
The point of this JCR-134 issue is only that when there is no more 
Version in the VH (they have all been deleted) and no more Node in any 
workspace referencing this VH, there should be a way to also delete the 
VH, which can't be useful anymore.
