I don't have a strong preference between the following:

(1) two XML elements (<retract/> and <delete/>)
(2) one <retract/> element with an optional 'notify' attribute

I guess I have a weak preference for #2 because it is more backwards
compatible -- if I send <delete/> to an existing service and it hasn't
yet been upgraded to support version 1.8 of the JEP, the item won't get
deleted, whereas if I send <retract notify='true'/> at least the item
will get deleted even if notifications won't be sent.
