Rename the 'Deleted' state to 'Deactivated'

On pages wp-admin/network/site-info.php?id=xxx and wp-admin/network/sites.php the sites can be given states. There is a state 'Deleted' that should actually be renamed to 'Deactivated'. Why? Please look at the quick action menu on wp-admin/network/sites.php by hovering over any row. In this menu you can adjust some states of that particular blog. Notice that deleted is not used. Here it's called Deactivated' ( or 'Activate' in case the blog is deactivated). The term 'deactivated' is so more fitting, especially when there is an actual action called 'Delete'.
Usage of the word:

  1. 'delete' is to permanently delete a blog
  2. 'Deleted' is to deactivate the site. So it should be called deactivate.

Anywhere 'Deleted' is used on the page should be renamed to 'Deactivated'. In other words only the readable text should be renamed. Any references in the source code where 'deleted' is used can remain the same. So this fix is just a superficial one; meant to prevent confusion and promote inconstancy in term usage.

Please review the attached images for more details.
