Cleaning up tags and branches

I have a repository that was migrated from CVS to SVN with the cvs2svn
script. During the migration, quite a few branches and tags were created.

Now other people are going to start using the repository, and I have
been asked whether we can delete the branches and tags created during
the migration. Being quite paranoid about stuff like that, I said no.
However, I think that it would be okay to create a new directory
/branches/cvsBranches and copy everything that is currently in /branches
to there. I would also create /tags/cvsTags and copy everything
currently in my tags directory to there.

Nothing currently in /tags or /branches is useful going forward, but
they helped greatly to set up my vendor source branches after the merge
and I'm scared to just get rid of them. At the same time, we would like
to start with "clean" /tags and /branches directories and enforce naming
conventions for their use.

I don't see any downside to moving the directories as outlined above.
Does anyone else?
