Good shout. Some time ago here (IIRC) some drops timed out because there was years of stats history attempting to be removed in one UR when the TS they were for was being dropped. Hadn't been an issue before, but that focused the mind a little. So yes, Modify Recovery and Modify Stats before a no-going-back Drop is an excellent suggestion.
