Why would you assume single timer recordings, or any recordings at all
are short-lived? If anything users tend to record shows and watch them
at some point in the non-immediate future -- the weekend for example,
when they're more likely to have time sitting around watching tv. I
know several people who record entire series and don't even start
watching them until all the episodes are recorded so they don't have
the irritating wait of a week+ between them. Then there are houses,
like mine, where one person will watch a recording one day, then
somebody else will watch the same thing some days later.
By now you should get the point that assuming recordings are
short-lived is bad, automatically deleting them is bad, etc. Typical
user behavior from my observation certainly isn't record something,
watch it immediately, then delete it.
