My point actually was, "modeling our behaviour to fit in with other
applications is probably wrong and may make bold assumptions about what
the user expects", however i phrased it in a way people seem to have taken
my words literally ;) (otoh, being consistent with say, evolution or
netscape mail is arguably good)

I actually have 'move by default' checked cause as a lot of people
pointed out it's not very usual to keep a bunch of copies of mail laying
around. And that is a very good reason to default to move. "is similar
to nautilus" however is not.
