My simple logic tells me that a dead URL is a dead one and not 'something' to forward otherwise you get a low score.
The Internet must be flexible - pages are added, removed etc.
Should one thinks about SE ranking or SE quality score for any move that is taken?
I still believe that 'I am the master of my domain' :-)
