Just to give Drew some support here, I agree with his sentiment. Since C-x r
is a pretty crowded keyspace, it's probably better not to add more bindings to
it without a more compelling reason than "we could". I've found C-x r d to be
a handy enough mnemonic for deleting rectangles. But I can understand how C-x
r DEL would be nice, so the fact that you can define this in .emacs is, I
believe, the right answer.
