The evidence in the link above for deleting this part from the catalog is as
follows:

"The thick whistle is probably just a prototype shown on the box and instructions
of set 118 and 138."

The point is that this whistle existed and there is a photograph (not a render)
of the item.

There are other catalog entries for prototype parts. We are not going to randomly
delete catalog entries for items that existed only as prototypes, because I would
hope that members wouldn't want us to delete them.

One of the side benefits of having a catalog of LEGO items is that we can indulge
in including some extremely rare and unusual parts in the catalog. I trust you
can appreciate that.

I've marked this request as completed because I added an additional note
to the catalog entry for this item.

I'm hoping for many more prototype parts to be allowed, both printing and
actual parts (such as 4x2 inverted slopes), as they are official Lego parts,
and have far more right to be here, than say, a clothes hanging with the Lego
logo on it.

I agree with you and don't give up hope on that. Give us time to work through
the catalog backlog and get our new catalog policies in place. There is much
to be done.
