or is the only supported option to “deactivate” the product?
Unfortunately, there is no concept of deletion so far.

Probably a little more. Your collector might just ignore the inactive product, so it will not be removed from redis. Looks like you have to add some custom logic that add a touch-delete event on deactivation.
ok if we implement something like this, it should not have any impact on old orders, correct?
do any of the importers know the concept of delete? ie. catalog, …
