Yes, that's correct. We've considered adding more metadata to delete messages to make routing easier, but the privacy issues involved get tricky (if I delete something, do I *really* want the full text re-sent to a bunch of people?)
Yeah - definitely tricky. The delete messages coming from "sample" only give the user_id and status_id, and I have to assume that the "publish" process doesn't send me a delete for a status that it didn't send to me. ;-)
I suppose you could do the same for "filter", but that would mean keeping track of all the tweets sent to *each* filter connection, not just one set of tweets like "sample". That could get ugly since you can't predict / control how many "filter" connections you're going to get or how many tweets are going to be passed by the filter criteria.
