Should we remove branches that have been integrated?

There is a minor nit that speaks against it, but that is not critical: 
SVN merges all the changes as one commit so that the individual commits 
that were done on the branch are not visible in the log of the merge 
target, they are only visible in the branch that was integrated. 
Removing this branch does not lose the individual history though as the 
branch is still in the revision history even if it is no longer in the 
head revision.

So I suggest that dead/closed/integrated branches are removed.
