Snapshots

Surely you wouldn't make them read/write and modify and go all horribly wrong like that as suggested?

You'd do the delete on the primary instance, then take a new snapshot to replace the existing one with. Most places would do snapshot creation automated on a schedule anyway so it would probably just sort itself out overnight. You'd then just delete the old one.
