I'm not sure who is "you", but for what it's worth, I agree it should be
available via some key-binding. Even more so in vc-dir.

That's a bug, indeed. But I don't see any place in the code where
that's done on purpose. Could you provide a recipe to reproduce the
problem? It might depend on the backend.

No need to argue that it's a bug, I agree.
[ For what it's worth, I'd recommend you vc-delete-file before doing
your tests, tho. After all, you can always undo it before committing
if it turns out it was a bad idea. ]

I've just changed the code to kill the buffer, indeed.
