To be honest I'd consider this a separate matter. Because if the data is 
deleted from site X but snapshots it it's that 
now processes your data, not site X.

Now, of course I do agree with your overall conclusion that the data is 
spread throughout the Internet anyway (through mailing lists, git logs 
etc.) but that doesn't mean that social sites shouldn't do their due 
diligence w.r.t. data deletion.

As for robots.txt not all archiving sites respect it:

Kind regards,
