Hey Peter,

I agree that under certain circumstances it would be useful to not send 
notifications when deleting items. If this is special case of deletion then 
I think that we can use the existing "verb" retract where by default it will 
send notifications unless it includes some flag that indicates the opposite. 
IMHO, reducing the number of verbs is a nice way to keep things simple 
(without making each verb very complex ;) ).

Just my 2 cents.
