Fully agreed.  I was just pointing out that to keep it generic it might
be better to start with limiting it to support "mark/unmark" and "apply
command to marked elements" without presuming that "deletion" might be
such a command (e.g. in package.el I'm not sure "deletion" makes a lot
of sense since most of the entries listed reflect the existence of
something on a remote server that's not under the user's control).
