i would not remove after branching. if you merge back to trunk, the
removed items will be removed.

it seems you haven't remarked yet that copying (branching) is 'cheap', i.e., it
does not take up disk space. otherwise, i don't see why you would want to
tag some subset of the files.

if you really need to release a subset of documents, what i'd do is :

 * create a release/export folder on the repo
 * svn copy there the needed files
