I would support in situ deletion. Much easier to understand.

One of the issues we came across was where to hold deleted content. There seem to be two choices:

1. In situ: Keep it where it is and mark it as deleted, e.g. by wrapping it in an element

2. Separate: Move it somewhere else and put a marker in to show where it was originally

It would be good to have any comments on this. I think that in situ seems simpler and avoids the dreaded ID or similar markers which can make life more complicated when processing.
