Doesn't matter if you delete the head of trunk. The history of trunk
is still there in the repository, the tag still points to a point in
that history, you can copy the tag to the new trunk if you like.

Another option is to keep the trunk right where it is and just undo
those 12 revisions that you didn't like. See "Undoing changes" in the
book for the reverse merging procedure:
