First of all, what?
I thought that it may be better if we restricted the deleting to only devs/TUs so this con no longer happen. (see bug http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/10527) . The question is, how often do packages get deleted from the AUR and thus how much work would this generate? I guess it would be in similar volume to what we already get from orphan requests but this is just a guess.
I don't think packages would get deleted that often at all. The only scenarios I can think of is when an SCM packages becomes obsolete because the SCM changed upstream, or as Callan said, a package was mistakenly uploaded.
