Applying remote changes for an application inserts a deleted choice and doesn't load actual choices for a field

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a scoped application
2. Add a table with a choice field.
3. Add few choices to the field.
4. Delete the choices that were added to the field.

a) Commit the application to source control
b) Apply remote changes
Expected: No choices are present for the field
Actual: One of the deleted choices is present for the field.

a) Add few new choices to the field.
b) Commit the application to source control
c) Apply remote changes
Expected: Choices created in step a) should be present for the field.
Actual: One of the deleted choices is present and the new choices created in step a) are missing for the field.


Inactivate the choices instead of deleting them.
