I disagree.

The cleanup performed in the code is merely to prevent a *false* memory leak
warning. A real leak does, in fact, not exist. This is the reason why I put it
directly before the execution of System.gc() in the "Find Leaks" function.

Since "Find Leaks" isn't supposed to be executed in a production environment, I
don't think that any further optimization (suggestion in 2.) makes sense. It
would probably make sense if this code would indeed be added to the normal
undeploy procedure but I really don't think that this is necessary or
advisable.

The idea is to prevent false memory leak warnings so that real ones aren't
ignored if they occur.
