Deleting a tracker does not allow you to reassign issues to a different tracker
When you try to delete a tracker that has issues assigned to it, it just errors out and tells you it can not be deleted. It would be extremely beneficial if you could reassign issues to another tracker, like deleting an issue activity allows you to.

You can search under "All issues" filtering that specific tracker and change the tracker to the desired new! This can be done in issue page through bulk-edit.
Of course, there is a caveat : if the new tracker has certain fields required but are blank in the given issues, it will fire the issue - which i think is a desirable behavior.

Let me ask the other way, if yo have a large number of issues under a tracker X which all needs to move to say tracker Y. (tracker Y is not empty) What other way can be made without violating field permissions set in the workflow?
In any case what is necessary is to have such a short and efficient way to move all issues to under another tracker. Deletion of tracker is not implied to have such behavior.
