Please see https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/blogs/cannot-remove-disabled-paths-while-path-part-disk-which-has-been-imported

for linux as well, if you force removed the paths with echo 1 > /sys/block/$disk/device/delete

there would be a bunch of NONAME devices in vxdmpadm getsubpaths 

because dmp is holding on to the device path somehow even though it is disabled.

basically, IMHO, in mission critical systems, it should be a reasonable thing to remove a disabled path  without requiring the diskgroup being deported.
