Description of problem: 

Retirement of a Vm or Instance should not delete it from the database.  Retirement should remove the Vm or Instance from the provider but the Vm or Instance should still be in the database.

Tested against CFME with rhevm and ec2 providers.

Instances/VMs retired through the CFME UI are not deleted from the VMDB, and their records are maintained.

This allows administrators to un-retire resources when available, and to maintain accurate C&U/chargeback metrics.
