Details

As of bug 1303679, we delete the Places, reading list, and top sites roots from the server if we see them during a sync. We can probably give tags the same treatment.

Left pane roots and custom roots are trickier: we need to write tombstones for them, so that they're removed from other clients. Unfortunately, I think we can only do this during the first sync, or as part of a full reconciliation with the server. As it is, we don't know the complete server state, so we might end up orphaning non-syncable items that we don't know about.

I thought we already had a bug on file for this, but we might've only discussed this in bug 1303679.
Priority: -- → P3

I think everything correctly ignores them now, so there's no real value to this.
