Leaving old wiring in place


I've seen some older posts related to the topic but just want to check that nothing has changed.

In order to leave old wiring that is no longer going to be used in a wall what needs to be done? I'd assume both ends (or more depending on how the wire is routed) must no longer be in energized boxes, ends probably cut flush or capped. What else?

I'm moving some switches around and will not be able to remove the wiring that goes to the old switch box without having to do more work than I'd like to.

If both ends are disconnected, you can leave the wires in the walls...no problem. (or actually if just the source end is, but that would make it hard to reuse whatever devices they were connected to )
