workflow observation?

It looks like once files pass through a workflow or even a "state" within a workflow, you cannot delete the workflow or the state... even if you transition the files to a different workflow. This could get messy as one makes changes over time to their workflow processes. Is there a way to clean up unused workflow states and workflows?

Example:
(I am still evaluating PDMWE.)
I put files in vault using default vault settings.
Files associated themselves with the Default Workflow.
I created another workflow (called Temp) to do some testing.
I linked the Default workflow to the Temp workflow and transitioned the files to Temp.
I worked with the files in the new workflow, then decided to work with the default workflow again.
I linked the Temp workflow to the Default workflow and transitioned the files.
I can't delete the Temp workflow.

I suppose there may be a way to hack the db to get rid of the Temp workflow, but I would rather not have to do that to keep my workflows tidy and organized.
