David, 

there has been a long time desire to have a delete button for the web (which 
has nothing to do with the data retention directive that concerns log data, 
not actual web data)
Unfortunately, it is relatively easy to trumpet about the delete button on the 
web. But as far as I can see, there is no serious idea around on how to make 
the delete button happen, how to implement. 
The delete button is one of the ideas floating around in Brussels at the 
moment. The technical savvy people know that this is a research topic. 

Best, 

Rigo
