These discussions about an article -- including about its deletion and
notability -- should be preserved just as deletion discussions are.
They will be useful if the article returns later, if others try to
determine whether it should have been deleted, and are a record of
discussions about knowledge by people who cared about the topic.
That's if the talk pages actually contain any relevant discussion; in
my experience, a substantial proportion of the time the talk page
contains nothing but templates.
