I am not aware of any procedure.
As svn allows to copy from old revisions, I suppose that it can be deleted.
(KDE has no "black hole" anymore, as it did with CVS.)
If (in some future) somebody really wants to resume developing it, he/she can
use "svn copy" to create something in one of the "playgrounds".
As for karma, I suppose that everybody can change directories in kdegraphics,
so deleting should work.
Have a nice day!
