I'm with Magnus on this: the risk of confusion seems to greatly
outweigh any possible benefit from keeping it.  There is no reason for
anyone to use that old repo unless they are still working with a local
clone of it, and even if they do have a local clone, such a clone is
self-sufficient.  And more to the point, it seems quite unlikely that
anyone is still working with such a clone rather than having rebased
by now.

We should wait a week or so to see if anyone does pipe up and say they
still use that repo; but in the absence of such feedback, it should go.
