Unpublished things might want to be published later. Deleted things are
things that don't need to be seen again (at least thats the assumption
at the time of deletion).

The whole node status thing could use some work (I think drafts would be
useful and the whole http://drupal.org/node/38451 mess for example), but
is not relevant for a general delete API.
