As we are talking here about possible improvements
to phpBB's core I definitly wouldn not like to see such an option in the standard
No matter which of the two alternative options you proposed were to be realized and then possibly choosen by someone, the overall effect would be negative: either crippling the contend flow of a topic, rendering it meaningless at best, or de-motivating all those who elese participated in it, by showing them a degree of disrespect for their
efforts, thoughts and engagement they invested that may well be considered annoying.

Why not allow administrators of forums make that decision rather than making it for them?
Not quite correct: why should an administrator allow users
to censor not only their own posts but the posts of other users as well, without any means of control against misuse - something that will be the result of such an optiony, directly or indirectly.
Deleting posts or whole topics should be up to admins or mods alone - if good
Something like this here should, imho, meterialize as an extension but not be part of the core, if at all.
