I would expect it to delete all rows from t2 but only return 1 row as output.

I think the ambiguous cases are going to come from cases where deleting
some rows in a subquery changes which rows will be deleted in subsequent
executions of the same subquery. Something like deleting the row with the
least value for some column.
