You can get the splits (into a file) and restore them (from a file).

I can give you one use-case where you wish to lose your splits.
Consider indexing information based on the current date.  And you want
to remove old data.  That is, you will never put old data back into
those old splits.  It makes sense to remove the rows, and the splits
associated with them.

deleterows is a sledgehammer.  It is not a fine tool for removing a
few stray elements.  Its a way of efficiently removing a month of data
from your 13 months of records that is (partially) indexed on month.
