I would be interested in your data, even if it is old,

average lifetime of removed links is. That might be a good cutoff

currently the case doesn't mean that it will have to stay that way.
There's probably lots of ways to generate useful reports for editors
from the externallinks table.
Externallinks is nice but of somewhat limited usefulness... It's
already been used to despam enwiki of spam that can be detected from
lots of duplicate links. We often use it to scan for SBLed stuff.. But
it hits its limits.
To find link removal times I have to scan all revisions. Weee!
