I think that is mistake.  The only reason for using them is to talk about
the unix-pc.  Since that is now done with comp.*.3b1, there is no reason to
keep the groups.  The only use they will get is the occasional pc unix
question.  They probably will not get their questions answered, as there will
be few people reading those groups.  There are already groups for that,
and keeping the unix-pc groups will only confuse those new readers.
