I'm not sure what 3/3 or 3/6 are in this message.
If I have #1-#6 of a file, I can obliterate any of those revisions, say, #1-#3, leaving #4-#6 intact.
That's from Perforce POV, of course.
Our users don’t like "holes" in the history, so we have a convention not to obliterate "in the middle" (or for that matter, sources of integrations). But that's only because we don’t like it - Perforce would happily obliterate anything. :)
