For a large part this stems from the fact that the Lisa type of GUI does not have the fight between MDI and SDI. The question simply never arises, because the Lisa type of GUI does not offer the choice to create either of both; it's something different all along. I usually think of it as 'MDI on steroids unified with a window manager'. It virtually includes all benefits of a SDI and and the benefits of an MDI."

If this is true, this is stupid IMHO, there is no value added to the user (only pain), this should be fixed by the freedesktop guys..

I doubt that it would break many scripts after all when you remove something, it is removed also to put it in the trash.

Coherency is especially valuable for new users, so adding a del command is much less interesting.
