I would start with this, but relax the "removal" action if unresponsive,
as I am not sure whether the reason for a lack of response is obvious or

That said, after gaining experience on this, I suppose we could have
more reliable information to guarantee removal of the delegation without
causing any real pain to anyone.

Certainly, members being in the know that their delegations aren't
working correctly is a massive step in the right direction.

I'd be keen to review such a policy.
