In Drupal 7, you could delete unnecessary strings in the UI.

Drupal 8 and 9 are missing this functionality; there is an open bug report to add it back, and hopefully it will eventually be fixed in Drupal 10.

There is a working patch in the issue to get a mostly working version of the function now.
