Yes, but that might not require to keep a dummy package and might
not be stored in the RPM DB.

and why? save 15 bytes?

It does not belong to the package DB as it is no longer a package.

And it will screw up stuff like dependencies etc. and make everything
slower.

But the repository metadata could have an extra file with
no-longer-present packages, which would only be consulted if e.g.
"zypper search" finds out that the package is not available. It could
even be used to point to alternate repositories etc...

Sounds like a pretty good idea.
