Reopening this. The current situation is just too much of a mess.

Currently online accounts are deleted when an app associated with it is uninstalled. While all other data is preserved for good reasons.

I think we can't just delete user data when an app is deleted. The current situation that accounts are deleted is already too much of an issue in various situations. Also, I'm arguing that we just can't delete for instance the user's authenticator tokens just because he temporarily uninstalls the app for whatever reason.

We might want to offer a possibility for the user to delete an app's data, but just deleting it without asking is not an option.
