For #1 and #2, really this sounds like another thing doing this along with
Ceilometer. I would really like to leave this in Ceilometer and not have
each project get more complex in having to keep track of this on their own.
I start having fears of discrepancy bugs of what projects' audit say and
what Ceilometer audit says.

Have Ceilometer do audits, keep temporary logs for specified time, and
leave it up to the ops user to collect and archive the information that's
important to them.

To answer your original question, I say just get rid of the column and do a
hard delete. We didn't have Ceilometer then, so we no longer need to keep
track in each project.

Migration path of course should be thought of for the users that need this
information archived if we decide to get rid of the columns.
