Purging old WTPart iterations

Currently in 9.1 and previous versions, there was a restriction on
purging iterations if it was the iteration from which a new view version
was created. This presents a problem when you have to fix things and
want to remove a component from the system. You would have to delete
the new view version, purge then recreate the new view version. Has
this been changed in 10.0? I am sure development would state there is
an integrity reason for this block but I cannot see the use case. Say
you have a BOM and CAD assembly and you make a new view version at some
point. Then before release you decide to remove a component from the
assembly and you so the same to the new view version. If you later want
to delete that component, since its no longer used in any current
iteration, you have to do a purge of the WTPart history. OK but it does
a partial purge since the iteration that created the new view version
cannot be removed. Therefore, the component you want to remove is
blocked from deletion. I am wondering if this is still that case and if
it possible to pursue a workaround with PTC.
