Yes +1.

What you are trying in node 8 is to provide options for every use case, for 
every possible combination and for every possible scenario. 
You /will/ miss a few cases and scenarios.
You /will/ offer a lot of hardly ever used options.

from my previous mail:
* There is not *one* way to do this. It very much depends on the site and 
* Drupal should not go for a default way, but rather present good hooks and 
APIs and let it be the way it is now [yet possibly better]: do nothing. Then 
the contributed modules could do it in fancy ways, acc. to what the site 
developer prefers to do.

Some (silly) modules I can thing of: 
* delete_my_content.module
* delete_my_account_and_content.module
* advanced_user_blocking.module
* unpublish_by_user.module


PS: I beleive most of these modules are already possible, yet no-one made 
them. Lack of interest? Is core already good enough? Or is drupal core too
