How to handle massive name deletion?

I stumbled over the following three changesets:

Where a user deleted around 200 tags name:hy from formerly Armenian, now Azerbaijani locations in the Nagorni Karabakh area.

As far as I am aware, OSM policy is that we use “reality on the ground” rules for this, which means that the name tag should change to Azerbaijani language after the takeover of the region. But I assume that even in this case, the old name should remain as a multilanguage tag?

Is that correct?

If yes, would it be justified to revert those three changesets?
