If OSM as an organisation wants to take annual snapshots for posterity,

You are confusing two different things here.

1) Things that were never current during the lifetime of OSM;

2) Things that have ceased to exist after being mapped.

The latter are never removed from OSM; they are simply not returned by standard API queries for the contents of an are. Redactions apart, the database still contains the previously mapped versions of things that were mapped and then "deleted".
