Well, I think many people will want to be able to leave disks detached
without deleting them, I'm not sure what the use case was that caused
Andrija to want to delete those disks. It sounds like he wanted to
delete attached disks and keep the vm.

>From experience, it would be relatively trivial to have a
'deleteVolume deferred=true' parameter that simply marks the volume as
destroyed, then the storage cleanup thread will expunge it. The list
volumes api call would also need to be changed to show destroyed
volumes optionally, and there'd need to be a new API call that allows
you to mark the volume read again to 'undo'.  This isn't much work but
unfortunately I'm not in a position to do that at the moment.

The big issue is really that drilling down into members of entities in
the UI seems to be broken, whether it's "view volumes" attached to a
vm or "view instances" on a host.
