I keep them around, for three reasons:

  1) my spamBayes DB could get corrupted and I need to 
      re-train from scratch (this has never happened to 
      me yet, but others have reported the issue with 
      earlier versions of SpamBayes)
  2) I test out other spam filters with them, including 
      mail-server-level filters that we use across our 
      whole organization
  3) They only take up 11 MB, and we have our mailbox
      limits set at 320 MB, so I have plenty of room
      without resorting to a separate PST file
