Yep! You make sure they're tagged properly.

But! What if a fair-use image is MISTAKENLY deleted??

... then it can be recovered pretty darn easily, because in almost all
cases they're readily available on the internet.

But! What if a fair-use image CAN'T be easily re-uploaded??

... then it can be undeleted.

The damage to the project is negligible, and any actual cases are
trivially easy to fix.

Do you have any cases of erroneous deletion to hand? Not theoretical,
actual cases. If so, were any of these not trivially fixable?
