So in 3 months I had to come with some solution what to do with old 
repositories. Options which comes to my mind - thinking loudly:

1) Give people warning and suggest them to archive it somewhere 
(repos.f.o, their own web...). And then remove F18 repos from Copr.

2) I can not remove the chroot from DB as that would remove access to 
repo files and is basically equal to option 1)

3) Chroots have flag if they are active. And overview page shows repo 
file only for those which are active. So I can just flip this attribute. 
Which will mean users can not select this chroot for building. No one 
will be allowed to build into that chroot. And in overview I can add new 
section "Archived repo" with some big red warning, that it is just for 
archived and not maintained in any meaning of that word.

While the last option is probably best, I'm not sure if this is worth 
the effort. How many people will appreciate having archived old repos?
