The ability to deleteby kiat (Vicar)

I've never had the need to delete a post I made, as the ability to edit your posts (according to the FAQ, this should be done preferrably with 'strike') makes a delete feature sort of unneccessary.
But I feel there might be situations where
a) The poster has reached a certain xp points.and if
(i) The node (a fresh node, not a reply) has not yet been approved.Or
(ii) A reply to a node has not yet been voted, whether + or - votes. Additionally, there're no sub-replies to this reply.One situation where a delete feature could be helpful is when you inadventently make a duplicate post. This can happen when you click on Submit but nothing seems to happen for a long time and then you click on it again, or do a refresh or some such. Something like that happened to me yesterday and I wasn't able to delete the duplicate post.
What are your thoughts?
