[p4] p4 integrate with p4 obliterate

I needed to move some files around in my depot. So,
using the p4 integrate/filespec command I
branched/moved my files to the needed directory. (I
really just wanted a rename but that doesn't exist.
And if you type p4 rename you are instructed to do a
p4 integrate then a p4 delete of the original file. So
After integrating the files then submitting them,
there they were in the new directory and all the
revision history was there. However, if I p4
obliterate the original file I lose the comment from
before the p4 integrate.
Is this a bug or expected behavior?

You're trying to add workflow capabilities to p4 in a somewhat
The natural way to do this would be to set up a sequence of branches
and integrate files from one stage to the next only when they meet
the release criteria to go to the next stage.
The common wisdom is that it's best to keep a through-going main
line (dev) and make a new set of branches when you do a release.
/-- (prep1) ----+-- prod1 -> /-------------- prep2 ------>
/-------------------- syst1 -> /---------------- syst2 ------>
When the "prep" line is ready to release it becomes "prod" and you
make new "syst" and "prep" branches. The branches for the released
product would remain active in case patches were needed to support
