Searching "announcement*" produces pages announcing 1.9.0 through 2.2.1  I think it would be safe to delete the lot of them, but I suppose we could attach a template that flags them as "ancient history".

*readme* search indeed turns up the OSX Readme pages that aren't quite as old, the most recent being for 2.4.7, but I'd think removing them would be safe too.  The content is duplicated in a file in the respective disk images so the information will still be available to anyone who actually needs it.
