I don't think it is - in general it's not intended that deletion of 
objects should get transferred across federation links. There's no grand 
theoretical reason for that, just that I thought that it might be a good 
way to shoot yourself in the foot. It's OK to accidentally create a 
bunch of federated stuff on remote servers; you can just go and delete 
it if you don't want it. But to delete things remotely seems like the 
sort of thing that will make somebody very unhappy one day.

Cheers, Simon
