It is not possible to remove a term if the associated object was deleted. It seems that LSH is maintaining a link in the backend between term and object, which prevents the term to be dropped.

If the term is de-classified before the object deletion, the term itself can be dropped afterwards.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create domain  - select Smoke subtype
2. Assign Security to new domain: Smoke
3. Go to Classification > Terms > Maintain Terms for SmokeHierarchy: add new term
3. Assign Classification: select SmokeHierarchy
4. Update Domain > Search and Add Value: new_term > Apply
5. Go to Classification > Terms > Maintain Terms for SmokeHierarchy: select <new_term> term > Remove > Apply

9. Create a new domain (ronnie6), and a new term <new_term> Assign SmokeGroup and SmokeHierarchy > add "new_term" term
10. Try to remove the term while it is associated with the domain - not possible
11. Update the domain and remove the associated term
12. Try to remove the term from Classification > Terms > success
