Yes I understand that, it has the effect of always hiding the placeholder from
normal users (putting it in the archive is okay if the OS'd revision would have
been page-deleted) and is therefore not going to happen.

I disagree that it should have ever been considered a feature, I don't see the
use case (and actually some people claimed to have a use case but wanted it to
stay private - away from Bugzilla - which is very much against the way
MediaWiki is developed and therefore very heavily encouraged me to WONTFIX it).
The idea has a separate bug of it's own which is WONTFIXed. Here is not the
place to try to bring it up again.
