For deleting and offline DC, try deleting all of the relevant objects out
of AD Sites and Services first. Start with the lowest level objects, i.e.
ntds settings. Then work up to the next object and so on. Eventually ADUC
should let you delete the DC. I have been doing this in 4.0.x for some time
and it works fine.
