Can not recover GamerTag... Live ID doesn't exist?

Okay, so I have a gamerTag. My gamerTag exists, it's always the tag I've used. However, I don't have an XBOX anymore, so I haven't logged into it in a long time. It also appears that my Windows Live ID doesn't exist anymore; I guess it has been deleted for inactivity. This should be fine right? All I need to do is recreate my Live ID and my GamerTag right? Wrong.

I can recreate my Live ID if I wanted to, but I can NOT set my GamerTag to my old GamerTag as it is currently in use... by my old, deleted Live ID. This means there is no way for me to recover my old GamerTag, or any of the assets that are linked to it. I wanted to use my old GamerTag with my Zune.

Is there ANY way I can get my old GamerTag? I don't even care if Microsoft has to DELETE my old GamerTag; I'm okay with losing all the assets on it... I just want the NAME. Deleting my old GamerTag would let me recreate it.
