I'd say leave all the tables in your model and in your docs, but flag
them as 'purpose unknown.'
If you have access to all the source code (and are willing), search all
the code for XXXXX_Alan_031703. If it doesn't occur, then you can be
pretty confident it's not used, and perhaps your doc for that table
could note that it has no apparent use and should be deprecated, unless
Alan explains what it's for. Maybe it's his porn collection :-)
