"Adrian Ellis has offered what I think is one of the best ways to address the deaccessioning dilemma."

Museum consultant Bob Beatty has a piece up at Hyperallergic on "the deaccessioning debate in museums."  As evidenced by his approving citation of the Ellis Rule, he seems to be in favor of a loosening of the "ethical" prohibitions on deaccessioning, but also seems keen to avoid the ire of the tomato throwers, so he's pretty subtle about it all.
