You could probably give the option to do it on deletion, but how would you handle undeletion of specific revisions from such a page?

Some times ago, there was an option (I don't remember the exact wording but something along) « delete all subpages too ».
I used it a lot when deleting a Index and all its Pages on Wikisource (and it could be a lot, some books are more than 1000 pages!). It was a bit hacky : I created a Page with the same name as the Index and delete it just a second after while activating the « delete all subpages too » option.
