I found the very useful but sadly outdated snippet from 2011.  If anyone
is interested, the following snippet implements the same functionality
within the new export framework.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun org-export-remove-prelim-headlines (tree backend info)
  "Remove headlines tagged \"prelim\" while retaining their
contents before any export processing."
  (org-element-map tree org-element-all-elements
    (lambda (object)
      (when (and (equal 'headline (org-element-type object))
                 (member "prelim" (org-element-property :tags object)))
        (mapc (lambda (el)
                (let ((new-object
                       (if (equal 'headline (org-element-type el))
                           (org-element-put-property el
                             :level (1- (org-element-property :level el)))
                  (message "%s level %s"
                           (org-element-property :raw-value new-object)
                           (org-element-property :level new-object))
                  (org-element-insert-before new-object object)))
              (cddr object))
        (org-element-extract-element object)))
    info nil org-element-all-elements)

(add-hook 'org-export-filter-parse-tree-functions
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

In addition it promotes all headlines under the removed "prelim"-tagged
headline.  This is useful to support structures like the following.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* Appendix                                                           :prelim:
#+LaTeX: \begin{appendices}
** Definitions
** Data Sets
** Tooling
#+LaTeX: \end{appendices}
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
